A new development is currently ongoing at the Adako Jachie training grounds as Asante Kotoko begin a massive upgrade and that plan is at the top of the agenda of the new board.
It could be recalled that, Nana Kwame Aboagye, who is the special aide to the Manhyia Palace Chief of Staff, after the announcement of the Kotoko Board of Directors stated that there were plans to heavily invest in world-class facilities at the team’s Adako Jachie training ground.
“We want Kotoko to look like a professional club and so, we are planning to invest at Adako Jachie. We want to follow the best practices done by the world’s big teams like Manchester City, Real Madrid and others. So we intend to start from a point.”
However, the new project according to Fox FM’s Opoku Afriyie is being financed by Board Chairman Dr Kwame Kyei and is being done by K. Appiah Construction Limited and not Joshob as circulated and he pays Ghc2,700 a day.
Facilities such as changing rooms, world-class training pitches and other facilities will be provided to upgrade the facility. No further details have been disclosed but it is expected that the building which was started by Dr KK Sarpong will be finished and serve as hostel facilities for the players as this will kick-start changes at the training ground.
Meanwhile, Joshob Construction Company Limited was adjudged the Road Contractor of the Year at the third West African Construction Awards in 2019.
