Club Consult Africa CEO, Yusif Alhassan Chibsah today on Ashh Supersports replied Nana Gyembibi Coker, a former management member of Asante Kotoko about his comments made on Light FM on the strike deal.
Speaking on Ashh FM, he said, “the new management have not officially contacted me about the speculations Nana Coker is speculating around”.
“Asante Kotoko have a contract with Club Consult Africa as an intermediate between Kotoko and Strike. The benefits are mutual between the two parties, Kotoko benefits from free delivery of souvenirs and Club Consult Africa also benefit from the sale of the souvenirs”.
“Concerning the Kotoko nose mask, we have not done any wrong looking at the contract at hand. Coker is wrong if he says we should have contacted management before selling of the nose mask, he should know better since he knows details of the contract. Nana Coker should table his case to the new management if he thinks am violating the contract between Kotoko and Strike. A caller cursed me saying “NYAME NTUA ME KA” because of the wrong information Coker gave on radio”
He further said, “Club Consult Africa buys all souvenirs from strike to Kotoko but i initially told Dr Kwame Kyei that, they should buy the replica jerseys themselves and sell to gain profit but he said NO I should do it myself”
“When he was asked about the details of the contract, he said, the contract have three components;
1. When Asante Kotoko sells 200,000 replica jerseys they get 200,000 Ghana Cedis.
2. A contract fee of 50,000 Ghana Cedis.
3. 5% of Net profit at the end of the year.
Looking at the Strike Trademark registration in Ghana, Strike is registered under Club Consult Africa and that gives us the rights to sell Strike souvenirs to any club in the country.
“I don’t have the accurate figures with me but if am not wrong, Kotoko have sold around 10,000 or 15,000 replica jerseys. And is never true that when a replica jersey is sold, Kotoko gets 1 Ghana cedis”.
“I will beg the new management to go through the contract i have with Kumasi Asante Kotoko if am going wrong they should call me to order”.
Chibsah was further asked why left the Sports Hotel as the sale point for the jerseys to Sports Stadium, he said; “we were paying $400 a month and we taught it was not helping the company so we left to Sports Stadium where we are paying 1,000 Ghana Cedis”.
