Management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko are yet to make a definite decision on iconic club legend, Stephen Oduro.
In a statement signed by the club’s Communications Manager, Kweku Ahenkorah, Kotoko recognises how Oduro has served the club with absolute dedication and they wouldn’t treat him with disdain.
Below is the release from the club:
NO DECISION TAKEN ON STEPHEN ODURO
The attention of Asante Kotoko Sporting Club has been drawn to comments made by midfielder, Stephen Oduro during an interview with a Kumasi based radio station.
Management, is by this press release attesting to the fact that, players of Stephen Oduro’s calibre, who have displayed absolute dedication to local clubs are a rare commodity in Ghana football these days.
That explains the reason this particular management brought him back to the club when we assumed office three seasons ago. For the avoidance of doubt, management states categorically that, we have not arrived at a definite decision on the future of Stephen Oduro whose contract has expired.
We wish to add that, management and the technical team will engage the midfielder in every step of the way in discussing his future at Kotoko so that, Stephen Oduro and Kotoko benefit mutually. Accusations and counter accusations in public is certainly not the way to go.
The club deserves better than that.
Management will make no further comment on this issue until we deem it fit to do so.
