”I don’t mind dissolving this team” furious Dr. Kyei blasts Kotoko players over F.A Cup exit.
Executive Chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Dr. Kwame Kyei, has threatened to dissolve the team following the club’s MTN FA Cup elimination by lower division side Asokwa Deportivo.
Asante Kotoko lost 2-1 to the Asokwa based side, condemning them to consecutive defeats, having lost 1-0 in embarrassing fashion to Aduana Stars last Wednesday.
In an audio recording leaked from Dr. Kyei’s “crisis meeting” with the technical team and playing body, Kwame Kyei took no prisoners as he threatened to dissolve the team.
“I don’t care dissolving the entire team. I can dissolve the whole team, sack all of you and start afresh. I don’t mind. This club is not a useless club. It is a team with history. This stupid and village attitude is the reason you cannot play in Europe,” Kwame Kyei began his inquest.
“Camarat (owner of Asokwa Deportivo) doesn’t even have 100 cedis to give to his players. He buys porridge and they all share to eat. That’s their only motivation to play. You all here are paid so well, more than in any club. Then you allow these small boys to beat you and you call yourselves professionals,” he said.
Kwame Kyei added that he would not tolerate substandard performance and results from either players or technical staff any longer.
“I wont’ sit down and let you lose so that someone will come and insult me. I won’t tolerate that. Look at the way they booed you (players) after the game; like thieves. And you were happy.
“From the coach to the players; if any of you is not ready to play for Kotoko, you can leave. I will reconstitute the team,” Kwame Kyei concluded before storming out of the meeting.
Asate Kotoko will hope to turn the corner on Friday, when they play Bechem United in the Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium.
