Asante Kotoko

Asante Kotoko have decided against travelling to Koforidua for their pre-season training camp as originally scheduled, due to last minute developments, FMIG has learnt.

According to reports, Kotoko who were set to depart Kumasi for Koforidua on Monday called off the trip due to some offers the club has received including an option to have a preseason camp outside the country.

Coach Maxwell Konadu’s side started training last week after successfully running the mandatory COVID-19 tests for players and other key staff.

It was expected this week would have commenced another step up the training programme with the trip to the All Nations University campus at Koforidua as the club prepares for the upcoming domestic season and their CAF Champions League campaign.

However, the trip looks to have been scrapped and according to the Communications Director Moses Antwi Benefo, the training programmed has changed.

“Our programme for the Koforidua training camp has changed. We’ve had late options, for footballing reasons we can’t go,” Antwi Benefo told Kumasi based Oyerepa FM.

Kotoko are expected to train throughout this week in Kumasi as confirmed by the communications director while they work out the next line of action as regards any pre-season camping exercise.

“We are going to continue our training exercise in Kumasi for this week. We’ve received late options with one of them being travelling outside Ghana. So we are weighing our options, and if we are to make our travelling outside the country, surely we will go and come before the league resumes,” he concluded.
