Former player and General Manager of Asante Kotoko Samuel Opoku Nti has lauded the club’s management decision to sign former Hearts of Oak defender Mohammed Alhassan.
The 30-year-old completed his move to the Porcupines on a year and half deal with an option to renew on Thursday afternoon and is expected to play a huge in the second half of the season.
Alhassan parted ways with Hearts of Oak earlier this year due to a disagreement with the club’s management.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Abusua FM, Opoku Nti the signing of Alhassan is one of the best the club has done in recent times and also highlighted his importance to the club.
“Mohammed Alhassan is one of the best signing Kotoko has done in recent times”
“We need to commend the management for signing such an experienced player”
“If you watch our matches recently, the defense has been our (Kotoko) major problem especially with the way we concede goals”
“I believe with his experience at national level and Hearts of Oak, he will be able to control our back line for us (Kotoko)”
During his time with the Phobians, he was a key contributor to the team’s successes, helping them to win two FA Cup titles and ending their long wait for a Ghana Premier League championship in 2021.
