However, the management of the Porcupine Warriors has said the club can’t meet Yacouba’s demands and has reportedly told coach Maxwell Konadu not to field him until his contract expires.
But Chairman of the Supporters group of the club Christopher Damenya has disclosed that about 2.5 million fans are ready to help the management to pay for the enticement fees demanded by Yacouba
“If the management of the club have tried several times to talk to the player and is yet to succeed, we as supporters also who are happy about his performance will also engage him and see how it will go”, Christopher Demenya told FOX FM.
“Every supporter wants Yacouba but just that maybe there is a misunderstanding somewhere which we all don’t know, so management has engaged him, fine, now we also as supporters will engage him and ask him of his problem”, he assured.
Christopher Damenya also revealed the supporters leadership will do everything possible to solve the problem of the player so that the club will maintain him.
“If he tells us his problems and we can solve, we will solve it for Kotoko because if he is part of the team, supporters come to the stadium because of him and that gives money to the club, so what we will do for the team (club) to get money to maintain its status to ensure we qualify to Africa, we will.
“About two million of my supporters (Circles) are ready [to pay], so if we finish the discussions with him and we reach a compromise and the management accepts that they are agree to what we will agree with Yacouba, we will pay”, he assured.
Songne Yacouba’s current contract with Asante Kotoko expires in April this year and failure to renew means he is on his way out of the club as a free agent.
