Asante Kotoko captain Felix Annan backs Otumfou's decision to ban player recruitment

Asante Kotoko SC captain Felix Annan has endorsed Otumfuo Osei Tutu II's ban placed on the team for none signing of new players into the team for one season.

The Manhyia Palace has ordered the new board of directors not to make any new signings for at least one season as they focus on establishing an international standard academy.

The goalkeeper believes that the King’s decision will help bring consistency and help them build a formidable team.

"We are just players and we are here to do our job, and cope with the directives that come from the hierarchy of the club," Annan told Kotoko Express App.

"I do agree with the directive because consistency is good for team building. It will be good for us if we have a consistent team."

However, Annan has pleaded with the King to ease the order when the need arises since the club might require reinforcements at some point.

"However, if there is the need to augment the squad with one or two players, I think that will not be a big problem. Buying too many players does not help in having the cohesion the team deserves."

"But the one or two additions, If needed, I think the board can discuss that with Otumfuo because, in football, you can’t predict when an injury will occur."

"However, I agree with the King’s idea because we need to be able to keep a group for a long time."

"Moreover, as players, we are ready to give our best to achieve whatever we want to achieve together."
