Footy-ghana.com can confirm that the Board of Directors of Premier League Champions Asante Kotoko will confirm club legend Samuel Opoku Nti as the club’s substantial General Manager on Friday December 12 2014.
According to our sources, a Board meeting will be held to determine the scope and duration of the job on Friday morning, before officially confirming Opoku Nti in the role.
Footy-ghana.com understands that club owner and the Ashanti Kingdom overlord, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II declared himself satisfied with the statement of accounts presented on Opoku Nti’s behalf to him by the Board and recommended that the former Ghana captain be allowed to continue in his role.
This, according to our sources, informed the Board’s decision to confirm him in a substantive capacity.
Opoku Nti was made the head of a three-man management team by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and following the reconstitution of the Board after the resignation of former Executive Chairman, Dr. Kofi Kodua Sarpong, he was asked to act in a temporary capacity last year.
Under his stewardship, Asante Kotoko won a league and cup double for the first time in the club’s history last term.
