Speaking to Cape Coast-based ATL FM, he disclosed that despite being contacted by some foreign clubs, he will respect his contract with Asante Kotoko and stay at the club.

“I have a two-year contract with Kotoko and I will respect it. Although some teams outside Ghana have requested for my services, I am for Kotoko and I love serving them,” he said.


He added that: “I now know and understand my players and vice versa. So I want most of them to stay at Kotoko. [The team] going to Africa although I understand the business aspect of football,” he added.
