Matthew Anim Cudjoe could return to Asante Kotoko for the 2020/2021 season after his agent confirmed that they are open to renegotiating with the Kumasi-based club.
The player who joined the Porcupine Warriors on six months loan deal from lower-tier side Young Apostles FC returned to his mother club after the contract expired on June 30, 2020.
According to several reports in the media, the player might not return to the Kumasi based club and could joined a club outside the country.
But his agent Anim Addo in an interview with Kumasi-based local radio Wontumi Radio revealed his client is ready to rejoin Kotoko should the Porcupines come back for his service.
“Honestly, in the interest of the boy if he wants to play any team in Ghana again then it should be Asante Kotoko, it’s Kotoko’s chance to lose him if they want it that way,” he said
“If there should be a foreign contract then he will leave but if not then he’s for Asante and everyone knows what my stand is so if Asante doesn’t do the right thing and lose him, I can’t be blamed because it is clear if he wants to play in Ghana again then it is Asante Kotoko”
Asked what the Porcupine Warriors can do to retain the service of the 16-year old, Addo answered,
“Currently there is no management rather the board and I have not received any call from anyone after the expiration of his contract, so far the only person in Kotoko who keeps in touch is Coach Maxwell Konadu. I am sure they know what to do because they already know what the boy can bring on board and I am open to renegotiating with them,”
“If he is to return to the club, we wouldn’t do politics like he’d travel abroad so we won’t let him play certain games because of his age. This is what gave Maxwell the chance because he assured me he will hand him enough playing time. We will consider a lot of things like his diet, building, development etc before we will think of extending his contract with Kotoko,” he added.
Cudjoe made six appearances for Asante Kotoko before the Ghana Premier League was truncated.
He scored one and assisted one in the process.
