Kumasi Asante Kotoko CEO In Hot Waters Over $15,000 Missing Transfer Money

Chief Executive Officer of Kumasi Asante Nana Yaw Amponsah is sweating over reports of expropriating $15,000 which is meant for the agency that brokered Nathaniel Asamoah’s transfer from Medeama SC and RAJA Casablanca of Morocco.

The former Kumasi Asante Kotoko forward joined Raja Casablanca in 2015 for a fee announced to be around $150,000.

Stories have appeared that the contract was brokered by Kotoko CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah and an agency commanded by Percy Allotey.

However, Percy Allotey in an interview with Kumasi based Fox FM said his agency is yet to receive their percentage of the agency fee and has therefore instructed the Asante Kotoko CEO to settle them with their $15,000 of the $150,000 contract amount or face court prosecution.

“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.

Meanwhile, Nathaniel Asamoah who now plays for Aduana Stars has also heaved his old club Medeama to the Player Status Committee about the Tarkwa based club declined to accept with the terms and conditions regarding his transfer to Raja Casablanca.

The GFA Player Status Committee has authorized Medeama to pay the amount they agreed on with Nathaniel Asamoah regarding his transfer to the Moroccan giants or suffer points deduction.
