Communication Director of Asante Kotoko, Obed Acheampong, has explained the reason why Awal Mohammed left the club to join Kuwaiti side Al Fahaheel.

Mohammed, who signed for the Porcupines prior to the 2016 season, played a pivotal role in Kotoko’s MTN FA cup and President’s cup title triumphs and has since parted company with the club ahead of his contract expiration in February, 2018.

Offering some details on the agreement, Director of Communications, Obed Acheampong, explained that “Awal Mohammed negotiated, as part of his contract, to forfeit his signing on fee in return for Kotoko’s will to consider permitting his exit at the end of the season in the event that he earns a move abroad.”

“Having judged his service as praiseworthy, management permitted him join the new club as holding him bound to his February expiration date would have put his move in serious jeopardy.”

“He joined us under a special circumstance and we found his situation special enough to come to an understanding when he needed to move on,” he said.
