Former board member of Asante Kotoko Madam Helena Kobbina has expressed her disappointment by the lack of progress on the Adako Jachie training facility.
Asante Kotoko was handed a large tract of land which the club has developed into a training facility with plans to add a befitting club secretariat, a clubhouse, and If possible a stadium of their own.
Headlines sponsors of the club MTN last year cut sod for the construction of certain facilities but to date, work has been halted on the project for a reason best known to the club.
According to Helena Kobbina, the big piece of land handed over to the club is under threat from squatters and estate developers.
” I am very disappointed at the level of progress of the Adako Jachie project. Squatters have started encroaching on the land His Majesty gave us.”
” In 1993, I went to study in Egypt so I visited the Zamalek stadium. It’s a nice edifice. People talk a whole lot about the team on the radio but do not bring any form of support to the club.”
She also advised the club to renovate the club house located at Tech to accommodate some of the players.
“The club owns a house opposite St Louis SHS so it should be renovated to accommodate the players to save the club from renting. Goalkeeper Joe Carr and others were living there,” she added.
