Management member of Kotoko Nana Kwame Dankwah has revealed his outfit are unable to put a player on a $1000 Month salary.
The Ghanaian giants are set to lose two of their most valuable players in the coming weeks after reaching an agreement to negotiate with Zambian Club ZESCO United for attacking duo Songne Yacouba and Emmanuel Gyamfi.
The two, undoubtedly Kotoko’s most outstanding players in the CAF Confederation Cup could see themselves in the camp of ZESCO United.
The news of the pair to ZESCO United have raised concerns among the Kotoko faithfulls who are unhappy with the decision by management.
Some supporters also believe the Club can tie down the two players should they increase their monthly wage, something Nana Kwame Dankwah says will be difficult to do.
“The revenue and expenditure of Asante Kotoko cannot pay a player $1000, we should not deceive ourselves and lead the club to do anything that will in the long run become an albatross on our neck,” he spoke to Oyerepa FM in Kumasi.
“We shouldnt forget that the economy of Ghana is not the best at the moment”.
Yacouba, 27, who has reportedly tendered in a transfer request is yet to feature for Kotoko in the NC Special competition.
