Prosper Narteh Ogum has finally confirmed his exit from Asante Kotoko as head coach after less than 10 months in charge of the club.
In a letter addressed to the reigning Ghana Premier League (GPL) Champions via his official twitter space, Ogum described as ‘regrettable’ his departure from the club at this time.
He expressed his gratitude to the support base for their welcome during his stay;
”My journey at Kotoko was short lived but the varied experience during this period will always remain dear. The passion, warmth and love I was welcomed with made me feel at home. Indeed, my dream of becoming a Kotoko coach, which I constantly told my students, had come to reality. Though enthused about joining one of the biggest clubs in Africa I knew I was brought there for a reason, the mission was to deliver,”
The University of Cape Coast lecturer also extended his warmest gratitude to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene.
“I extend my warmest appreciation to His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Board and Management of the club for the opportunity, belief and trust reposed in me and my team and made my dream a reality. To the technical and Medical Team, the Legends as well as the Playing Body, I am most grateful for your support.”
Ogum was named head coach before the start of the previous season, and he signed a two-year contract.
The former WAFA gaffer exhibited great capabilities and his efforts were crowned with ” winning the Ghana Premier League after eight (8) years making Kotoko the best club for the season.”
Kotoko have begun pre-season training under the direction of youth coach Abdul Gazele.
The club will be looking to salvage their CAF Champions League campaign as the venture into Africa.
