Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah has admitted he made a mistake in sacking Maxwell Konadu.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, Amponsah stated that he did not inform the board of directors before terminating the contract of the former Black Stars assistant coach.
“I made a mistake for sacking Maxwell Konadu because I did not officially write to inform the board,” Amponsah, was appointed by the board in August, said.

“I admit I am wrong and I accept that. Maxwell Konadu’s records at Kotoko was not bad but it was time for him to go and other big clubs in the world have done that but I again admit I was wrong for not informing the board.
Konadu, a former Kotoko forward, was sacked after their shock 1-0 defeat to Great Olympics. It was Kotoko’s first defeat of the 2020/21 season.
Currently, the club is under the guidance of Johnson Smith until a new head coach is found.
Since Konadu’s departure, Kotoko have been involved in two games which they recorded a win and a defeat. The defeat came in their Caf Champions League clash with Al Hilal in Accra.
The disappointing 1-0 result means Kotoko are on the brink of elimination from the competition at the second round stage.
