Asante Kotoko CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah is sweating profusely over an allegation of pocketing USD$15,000 which was supposed to be paid to an agency that worked on the transfer of striker Nathaniel Asamoah from Medeama to Raja Casablanca.
Asamoah, 30, was transferred from Medeama to Moroccan side Raja Casablanca in 2015 and, according to reports both Amponsah and an agency headed by Percy Allotey brokered the deal.
Meanwhile Percy Allotey in an interview with Kumasi based Fox FM on the Focal sports show hosted by Rockson Adjei Yeboah has told the Asante Kotoko CEO has to pay their $15,000 or face court action.
“Our agency teamed up with Nana Yaw Amponsah in the transfer of Nathaniel Ohene Asamoah from Medeama sc to Raja Casablanca in the year 2015 and per the agreement, we have a difference of $15,000 to be paid to us by Medeama SC. After consulting Medeama SC we learnt they have given the money to Nana Yaw Amponsah,” he mentioned
“As we speak we have tried calling Nana Yaw Amponsah on several occasions but he declined our calls. We have handed the case to our Lawyers. We have given Nana Yaw Amponsah five days ultimatum to pay us or face us in court. We have written a demand letter to Nana Yaw Amponsah and copied Mr Kofi Badu (Chief of Staff Manhyia Palace), Prof Dr Kwame Kyei Baffour (Board Chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC), Mr Emmanuel Dasoberi (Administrative Manager Asante kotoko SC), and Mr Moses Armah Parker (Owner of Medeama SC),” he added.
Nana Yaw Amponsah is also set for a showdown meeting with the Board of Directors of Asante Kotoko, a meeting which is expected to be centered around performance review.
