EXPERIENCED coach, Herbert Addo, has denied media reports that the Interim Management Committee (IMC) of Kumasi Asante Kotoko has put his intended formal contract on hold until the end of the upcoming GHALCA Top 4 competition.
The coach says he has never heard of any such allegation, let alone management writing to him on the issue.
The allegation, which spread in Kumasi in the aftermath of Kotoko’s 0-2 defeat to Kpando Heart of Lions last Sunday, further had it that the IMC was not happy with the output of the club in the said match and felt something must have gone wrong with the technical direction.
Consequently, they allegedly decided to wait until the end of the Top 4 so that they could properly assess the coach and consider his contract.
The allegation further indicated that out of anger, Coach Addo left Kumasi and had asked the management to present him with a formal contract before he would return to the club.
But in a telephone interview with the Graphic Sports last Wednesday, Coach Addo said: “any such allegation has not come to my notice.
“I have not left the club. I am attending a course at Prampram, and on completion I will return to Kumasi.”
The coach, however, admitted that he was yet to sign a formal contract with the club.
Before Kotoko’s defeat to Lions, there were disagreements between the two parties over contractual specifications.
