Young, but intelligent football administrator – Nana Yaw Amponsah’s quest to assume the reign as the next Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Asante Kotoko has ended as Manhyia disqualifies him for failing to remain tight lipped prior to an official announcement.
The 2019 Ghana Football Association Presidential aspirant was the chosen one for the Kotoko CEO job especially when George Afriyie decided to step down from the race, but the owner of Phar Rangers could not keep his emotions in check leaking snippets of information [to the media] of what happened at his presentation to the Board of Directors of the club last week.
This move by Nana Yaw Amponsah seem to have irked the movers and shakers in Manhyia to the extent of denying him his dream appointment.
Speaking to Opemsuo FM on Monday, the Special Assistant to the Chief of staff of the Manhyia Palace [Kwame Aboagye Mensah] said that Nana Yaw Amponsah is not the chosen candidate for the Asante Kotoko CEO position.
“We have heard the news circulating in the media that the Board of Directors have settled on him.
“It’s not true and I repeat it’s not true.”
Kwame Aboagye Mensah went on to advance the reason[s] why Nana Yaw Amponsah cannot be trusted:
“Everyone should take note that Asante Kotoko is a big brand and it can’t work with someone who is not secretive”
“Being interviewed by the Board of Directors and the next hour everything said during the meeting is in the media.
“How can we work with such individual?” he subtly asked.
Former Ghanaian international – Samuel Osei Kuffour suffered a similar fate when he declared himself publicly as the President of the club ahead of an official statement from Manhyia thereby causing him the position that he so much cherished to land.
The smart and intelligent Phar Rangers FC President, is an expert in the areas of Commercial Aspects of Sports, Sports and Ethics, Sports Governance, Representing the Athlete/Player and Sports Regulatory Regimes & Sports Rights, and ambush marketing.
Nanan Yaw Amponsah holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Ghana, Legon, and a Master’s Degree in Sports Law and Practice from the Leicester DE Monort University, UK.
