The representative of defender Empem Dacosta, Kwaku Blessing, has revealed in an interview with Ash FM that Kumasi Asante Kotoko Head Coach, Maxwell Konadu, had made it clear that the centre-back was not a part of his plans.
“Coach Maxwell Konadu told my client Empem Dacosta that he wants to release him so it’s either Kotoko found a team for him,”
“The coach told me point blank that Empem Dacosta is not part of his plans and he didn’t give me any reasonable reasons.”
The 23-year-old who signed a 3-year deal with the Porcupine Warriors back in 2019 from Aiyinase-based Karela United is set to leave the club by mutual consent after Head Coach Konadu allegedly told him to find a new club.
“Things which Dacosta wanted to do for Kotoko he didn’t complete his mission because my client signed three years for the reds and have played just a year.” Blessing said
“We are not happy leaving Kotoko but Maxwell Konadu said he doesn’t want his service we can’t do nothing about it but we believe Empem will come back to Kotoko one day,” he concluded.
The centre-back made 19 appearances in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) of the Porcupine Warriors, he was also a fixture in the side’s CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup run.
