SPECULATIONS that the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, would dissolve the Alhaji Inje-led management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko last Monday failed to materialise.
At a meeting with the management at the Manhyia Palace, Otumfuo asked them to continue in office until further notice.
The meeting was held behind closed doors, but a source told the Daily Graphic that the Asantehene did not give any indications of dissolving the management.
However, the Life Patron of the club indicated that the board would be put in place soon to direct the way forward for the club. Mr K.K. Sarpong is to be introduced formally as the board chairman next week.
The Kotoko management had had to deal with external pressures and internal wrangling for some time.
Some of the supporters are not happy about the performance of the club in the just-ended league and have called for changes to position the club for the next season.
Internally, a management member, Rev. Osei Kofi, had also muddied the waters with the allegation that the management spent about GH¢90,000 on ways and means for the football season.
Rev. Osei Kofi promised to prove the allegation at the meeting with Otumfuo but my source said the matter was not discussed.
