Asante Kotoko legend Sarfo Gyamfi has cautioned the current management of the club against sacking beleaguered Portuguese Coach Mariano Barreto.
Gyamfi, famously referred to as ‘The Black President’ in his playing days believes, the trend of dismissing coaches and paying hefty compensation monies should be discontinued.
In his view, the Nana Yaw Amponsah-led management should have included performance related clauses in his contract which would have triggered his sack after the season ended ingloriously for the Porcupine Warriors.
Asante Kotoko finished the 2020-21 campaign empty handed after failing to achieve all set targets Sporting-wise.
The development has led to much scrutiny on the club’s post season activities. In fact some incensed fans have singled out Barreto for blame for the club’s inability to win a trophy.
His recent remarks about Kotoko’s training grounds and other happenings around the team have also won him more enemies than friends.
In analyzing how the issue at hand should be dealt with, Sarfo Gyamfi has advised management not to sack Barreto and end up paying a heavy compensation fee.
He disclosed this in an interview with Alhaji on SilverFM’s early evening program dubbed SportsNet.
Watch him in the video clip below.
