Dr. Ernest Opoku has been appointed the new Public Relations Officer of Asante Kotoko, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The owner of Kumasi-based Red Hill Clinic was appointed Saturday evening and starts work with immediate effect.
Dr. Opoku replaces Listowell Yesu Bukarson who has been moved to head the Marketing department of the club.
His appointment was highly unexpected as speculations over the appointment of Thomas Boakye- Agyemang and Kofi Appiah for the vacant position were rife in the Ghanaian media.
The two were however overlooked with chairman Dr. K.K Sarpong preferring to appoint an entirely fresh face with presumably no enemies within the media circles to head his communication’s directorate.
Dr. Opoku is however very popular within the Kotoko set up as a respected medical practitioner who uses his clinic to take care of the club’s player’s and staff for free.
He is also said to be one of the financier’s of the side and does a lot of work for the club behind the scenes.
