Asante Kotoko will today, August 7 confirm the appointment of Nana Yaw Amponsah as the club’s Chief Executive Officer.

This comes after Asante Kotoko Board of Directors having had a broader consultation with Manhyia and have finally settled on the football administrator to be the club's new CEO.

The unveiling ceremony will be held at the Sports Hotel in Kumasi at 11 am today.

The former Ghana Football Association Presidential candidate has been linked to the job in the last few months and attended an interview with the club’s board in July.

The Reds have been operating without a chief executive with Yaw Adu who is a board member acting as a CEO since George Amoako’s departure on June 10, 2020.
