Immediate past Chief Executive Officer of Ashantigold SC, Frederick Acheampong says he is proud of the work he did for the Miners during his two years reign.
According to the GFA Executive Council Member who resigned from his post yesterday, he and his colleagues have moved the Ashantigold brand to a greater height than it was in 2018.
In an interview with Kumasi based Kessben FM, the renowned sports journalist said “In my time at AshantiGold [with my colleagues], we achieved a lot together. When I arrived, I felt that AshantiGold was a big club and deserved an improvement in the brand to become huge in the system. We made an effort in that area. There were even people I brought on board [for that] and paid them from my own pocket.”
He added that with the exception of the CAF Confederation Cup, the club under his tenure performed better in all the competitions they participated in.
“There is no competition that was organized during my time that AshantiGold did not perform well. In the cancelled Premier League during the 2017/18 season, we were tied with Medeama SC at the top with 27 points. We reached the semi-finals in the tier one of the NC Special Competition and won the tier two of the NC Special Competition. We always performed.”
“We did not perform that well in continental competitions but it was a learning experience for us,” said Frederick Acheampong.
