Kotoko settles Duncan’s GHȼ44k arrears

Premier League club Kumasi Asante Kotoko have finally settled all outstanding arrears owed former Coach David Duncan.
The Porcupine Warriors have now completed the full payment of 44,000 cedis which was to serve as damages for the former Hearts of Oak trainer who was fired last season.
He was relieved off his duties after just four matches in the 2015/16 season as he recorded a string of poor results.
A statement on the club’s website stated that “Management has disclosed that, it has fully cleared the GHȼ44,000 financial arrangement it had with former coach, David Duncan.
Coach Duncan was appointed by the Opoku Nti-led Management in April 2015. He replaced former coach, Mas-ud Didi Dramani, who was asked to proceed on leave by the same administration after poor results in seven matches of the 2014/15 season.

Coach Didi had won the double with Kotoko the previous season.
Duncan steered the Porcupines to second place in the league. He lost the MTN FA Cup final to Medeama the same season.
Under him, Kotoko also exited the CAF Champions League at the second preliminary round stage as they drew goalless with Algeria’s El Euma away and lost 2-1 in Kumasi.
Things turned sour for Duncan after six league matches in the 2015/16 Premier season.
He was then directed to step aside – a directive that necessitated a GH44, 000 parting financial arrangement between Kotoko and him. The last installment of the payment arrangement was paid this month.
