Asante Kotoko left back Abass Mohammed says he is ready to terminate his contract with the Porcupine Warriors after he was told he isn’t part of the plans of the coach.
The once capped Ghana Black Stars player joined the Porcupine Warriors in October 2018 after returning home from a season’s spell in the United States with USL side Harrisburg Islanders.
He enjoyed a bright start to life at Kotoko during the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup campaign under former coach CK Akonnor.
But injuries forced him to miss a lot of games for the Porcupines.
The left back has fully recovered from injury but was left out of the squad that travelled to Koforidua for preseason campaign.
According to him, head coach Maxwell Konadu has informed him that he’s not part of his plans for the coming season.
“I have one year contract with Asante Kotoko but coach Maxwell Konadu has communicated to my manager that I am no more part of his plans.
“I think there’s nothing I can do to stay at the club after this pronouncement from the coach.
“I’m disappointed that I was not offered the chance to fight for a position but it’s normal,it’s part of football.
“I don’t blame coach Maxwell Konadu because I got injured right after he joined us but I thought I would be given an opportunity to prove myself now that I’m fit,” he said.
The former Inter Allies player also pleaded with the management of Asante Kotoko to attend to him in order to terminate his contract with the club.
“I want to take this opportunity to plead with the Kotoko management to sort things out with me because the league will resume soon and I cannot stay home.
“My agent has been in Kumasi for the past one week,calling and sending e-mails for us to meet and terminate the contract but to no avail.” He added.
Abass is likely to apply for floating status from the Player Status Committee of the Ghana FA to enable him join a club of his choice before the season kicks off.
