Players never sabotaged Duncan – Adams

Kumasi Asante Kotoko defender, Ahmed Adams has said there was no sour relationship between the playing body and their former coach, David Duncan.

Duncan was asked to step aside until further notice after a series of poor results, and his assistant Michael Osei was tasked to take charge of the technical bench.

Coach Osei has since turned around the fortunes of the club ass they have risen to fifth on the Ghana Premier League log after being last at a point in time and have also booked a place in the last 16 of the MTN FA Cup competition.

The quick turn around of the fortunes of the club has intensified reports that the players undermined David Duncan’s reign.


Ahmed Adams, who has played every minute of league football under both coaches, has however rebuked those claims noting that nothing has changed under Michael Osei.

“We didn’t sabotage David Duncan. We were very close to him. The only thing that differentiated us from Coach Duncan was his attire whenever we were together with him,” he said.

“Michael Osei has not brought anything new to the club, it is the old Kotoko,” he told Accra based radio station, Happy FM.

Kotoko is four points behind league leaders, Accra Hearts of Oak after 11 matches.
