Bankroller of Kumasi King Faisal, Alhaji Grusah, has stated that under no circumstance should one run Asante Kotoko at a loss and incur debt.

According to him, the two most glamourous clubs in the country, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko have a good fan base to help generate good revenue.

He said his outfit depends on the two clubs to survive when they clash.

He said: “No one should ever run Kotoko at a loss,” Alhaji Grusah told Kessben FM in relation to Kotoko’s recent financial challenges and new management.


“I plan my season on Kotoko and Hearts of Oak fixtures because the money I always get from the two clubs after my home games are enough to do something tangible.

“I’m always amazed when I hear that people handle Kotoko and run into several losses. Kotoko is a big club in the entire African football club rankings and I will be a billionaire in three months if given Kotoko to run.

“[Kotoko life patron] Otumfuo [Osei Tutu II] has appointed board members who are very successful and rich to run the club for him.

“So in what sense should anyone be bankrupt running Kotoko?”
