Asante Kotoko National Circles Council (NCC) Chairman, Christopher Demenya has revealed that about two hundred million supporters of the club have agreed to pay for the demands of star striker Songne Yacouba so he renews his contract with the Porcupine Warriors.
According to the Chairman, the supporters leadership have arranged to engage Yacouba in a dialogue to fish out the plight of their star forward, find solutions and even pay money to convince him to extent his stay at the club.
“If the management of the club have tried several times to talk to the player and is yet to succeed, we as supporters who are happy about his performance will also engage him and see how it will go with his problems”, Christopher Demenya told FOX FM.
“Every supporter wants Yacouba but just that maybe there is a misunderstanding somewhere which we all don’t know.
Christopher Damenya also revealed the supporters leadership will do everything possible to solve the problem of the player so that the club will maintain him.
“If he tells us his problems and we can solve, we will solve it for Kotoko because if he is part of the team, supporters come to the stadium because of him and that gives money to the club, so what we will do for the team (club) to get money to maintain its status to ensure we qualify to Africa, we will.
“About two million of my supporters (Circles) are ready [to pay], so if we finish the discussions with him and we reach a compromise and the management accepts that they are agree to what we will agree with Yacouba, we will pay”, he assured.
Songne Yacouba’s current contract with Asante Kotoko expires in April this year and failure to renew means he is on his way out of the club as a free agent.
