The life patron of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Otumfuo Osei tutu the 2nd in his address at the Manhyia Palace on Wednesday said the Executive BoD chairman of the Club, Dr Kwame Kyei can manage the Kumasi based football club for the next 10 to 20 years.

Management, playing body and the technical team of the club called on the owner of the club Otumfuo on Wednesday to present the MTN Fa cup 2017 trophy they won from ache rivals Accra Hearts.

Though the letter by Manhyia in November 2016 stipulated a three year mandate for Dr Kwame Kyei as the Executive chairman of the club, the

His royal Majesty in his address reiterated Dr Kwame Kyei can run the club for 10-20 years considering long, short and medium term projects.

”I’ve heard complaints about short terms for Asante Kotoko CEO’s. Go
and manage club for the next 10 or 20 years so I can have my peace.
You can pass by once in a while” Said Otumfuo.
