Ransford Nettey, father of Asante Kotoko full back Christopher Nettey has advised Asante Kotoko and Godwin Attram to reach a consensus agreement in the transfer of his son.
Christopher Nettey joined the Porcupine Warriors from Attram de Visser prior to the start of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League and has since established himself as one of the best right-backs in the country.
However, his current team – Asante Kotoko are yet to pay the transfer fees of Nettey in full ($35,000) which has seen Godwin Attram, co-owner of Attram de Visser, threaten to take the full-back from the Porcupines.
This led to Nettey missing the club’s first phase of their preseason exercise but has since arrived in the camp of the Kumasi-based outfit to rejoin Coach Maxwell Konadu’s side.
“My son Christopher Nettey belongs to Attram de visser Soccer Academy, he gave the player to Kotoko now the problem is paper work, documentation that’s what am worried about because if two elephants fight it is the grass that suffers so if Attram and Kotoko doesn’t come to a compromise its going to affect the future of my son”, Ransford Nettey told Oyerepa FM in an interview.
Mr Nettey continued: “I am pleading with them so that my son will be free to play as simple as that. Maxwell Konadu and Godwin Attram have all played Football so know the ins and outside of it. Am just appealing with them to both parties to take a second look at the boy’s future and not the money they are going to get today,”
“The two parties have failed to understand each other on monetary matters. Kotoko signed him for $35000 and my son was to receive GHc 25000 annually for 3 years but Nana Yaw Amponsah asked for a review after the Covid-19,”
“The review is the issue and my suspicion is the onward transfer,” he concluded.
Christopher Nettey made 13 appearances for Asante Kotoko and won three NASCO man of the match awards in the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season which was cancelled due to the global pandemic – coronavirus.
