Former Asante Kotoko Chairman Herbert Mensah has refused to rule out a return to the club in the future.

The current leader of the Ghana Rugby Union served as the Board Chairman of Asante Kotoko from 1999-2003.

He took charge of a club that was then struggling and helped transform their fortunes both on and off the pitch with a 5 year strategic plan. His transformation drive is believed to have spearheaded the transitioning of Ghana Football into a more professional era.

His successes at Kotoko resonates well with the king makers and has often been described as the best leader the club has had in the last 2 decades.

With news rife that the current executive Chairman, Kwame Kyei is set for the exit, rumours have been going round as to who next gets appointed to lead the club.

Despite admitting his interest lies elsewhere, Herbert Mensah has issued a caveat that he will not be in a position to decline a call by the Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II to return.

He told TV3’s Juliet Bawuah “There is only one person who can order me and that is Otumfour. I consider myself the luckiest of all chairmen of Kotoko because I still have an extraordinary relationship with Otumfour”.

“I was announced as Chairman of Kotoko without my consultation with myself. If Otumfour Osei Tutu II wants to do that, I will have no choice” he mentioned.

Herbert Mensah is however praying he does not come under the radar of the Ruler of the Asante Kingdom who he admits remains a very close friend.
