Coach pens emotional letter to Kotoko

The Porcupine Warriors officially parted ways with Duncan last week Wednesday, despite having been told to ‘step aside’ way back in April for his assistant Michael Osei to take charge of the club, after poor start to the Ghana Premier League.

David Duncan has posted a heartfelt message of thanks to Asante Kotoko following his departure from the club.


And on Monday, Duncan posted a message of thanks to the owner, management and supporters of the club.


I wish to express my sincere thanks to the owner and king of Asanteman and Kumasi Asante Kotoko Sporting Club, Otumfuor Osei Tutu for granting me the opportunity to be associated with his club as Head Coach. I will forever be grateful to him for that privilege. God richly bless his kingship.

And to the chief of staff Mr. Kofi Badu and the other Chiefs and Board members of the club under the chairmanship of Lawyer Adu Gyamfi who warmly welcomed me into the Kotoko family. My thanks goes to you as well.

I definitely cannot forget the management under the leadership of Opoku Nti. It may not have been an ending we all envisaged or anticipated, but he still has my respect as a friend, a legend in the sport, and a Christian brother. I wish him personally well in his future endeavors.

I salute the fans of the club under the dynamic and matured leadership of Chairman Amponsah(K5). I will be the first to acknowledge the fact that I enjoyed their unwavering support over the period I had working with the club.

Thanks to all the friends in all the various fields of human endeavor I came into contact with whilst in the city. May God's grace be multiplied to you all.

It's with great regret that I leave such a great club, but such is the nature of the industry. We may not have absolute control over how some of its ending plays out.

I take this opportunity to wish the club ALL THE BEST in its endeavors.


David Duncan.
