The management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko has finally announced changes in the club’s 2022-23 unveiled jerseys following an interview by Kessben TV with Alhaji Karim Grusah.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Tuesday 26th July unveiled their kits for the 2022-23 football season with an Otumfuo embossed image on the jerseys.
The club said the new jersey was inspired to celebrate His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the life patron of the club as the pillar of 2021-22 Ghana premier league champions.
Few days after the unveiling of the jerseys, the club president of King Faisal Football club in an interview with Kessben TV described the management’s decision to put Otumfuo’s image on the jersey as uncivilised.
His comment generated much discussion in the football circles in Ghana as many opined that it was not right to have placed an image of a club owner on the jersey.
The seat of Asantehene, Manhyia reportedly summoned the CEO of Kotoko Nana Yaw Amponsah over Otumfuo’s image on the jersey without permission.
On Thursday, 4th August 2022, the club finally announced that they have removed Otumfuo’s image on the jersey.
“We have after further considerations in collaboration with Errea amended our 2022/23 Kits. Kum Apem a Apem Beba” the club said.
