Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Two Asante Kotoko players who are sulky dissatisfied with how the club has treated them, have formally reported their cases to the Professional Football Association of Ghana (PFAG).

According to local radio station, Oyerepa FM, the duo of Douglas Owusu Ansah and Matthew Kelvin Andoh have lodged a complaint against the club after been unfairly treated.

The two complain that they have been unjustly released off their contracts without any proper pre-termination engagement.

These players had no option but to resort to the players welfare body after the club asked them to come for their termination letters without any consultation with these players or their representatives.

Andoh and Owusu Ansah together with Richard Arthur, Evans Owusu, and Abass Mohammed were left out of the team’s Covid-19 testing exercise on Tuesday September 29, ahead of resumption of training activities for the upcoming season.

Per reports, Kelvin Andoh was called by the administrative manager, Emmanuel Dasoberi on Tuesday to come for his termination letter because his services was no longer needed by the club.

The player who had a two year deal running with the club then decided to report the matter to the PFAG.

Further checks by Ghana News Page indicates that Kelvin Andoh personally filed the complaint but for Douglas Owusu Ansah, his furious dad made the complaint on his son’s behalf after he also encountered a similar ordeal as Andoh.

Both players were surprised because the club had not engaged them to arrive at this decision so they complained to the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana.


The PFAG is a body representative of Ghanaian Professional Footballers and has received the endorsement of FIFPro (the world player representative body) and FIFA.

The Association is yet to invite Asante Kotoko on these two cases per sources.
