Be patient with Prosper Ogum – Emmanuel Gyamfi tells Kotoko fans

Former Asante Kotoko Emmanuel Gyamfi has asked fans of the club to give Prosper Narteh Ogum more time to turn things around at the club.

Ogum has been under constant pressure in the second half of the season with the club recording just one win in the league in 2024.

The Porcupine Warriors have suffered six defeats in their last seven league games prompting tension between management and the fans.

On Tuesday, April 16, fans stormed the club’s training ground to prevent them from training as they called for the sacking of the former WAFA boss.

However, Gyamfi believes Ogum is capable of turning things around at the club despite things not going as planned.

“Whoever says the coach isn’t good is a liar. I’ve met him before at the local Black Stars camp, I worked with him at Kotoko for a short period before my departure and I know how he likes his team to play. Even after all, he won the league title in his first season with Asante Kotoko,” Gyamfi told

“His performance was appealing to the football world. That’s why people were clamouring for his second coming to help the club.

“Even though we [Aduana] beat them at Dormaa, their performance on the day showed they meant business, they were up to something so whoever condemns his performance as a coach, I will strongly disagree with that person, it’s rather unfortunate that things haven’t gone the way they wanted it.”

The Aduana forward also failed to comment on a possible return to the Baba Yara Stadium though he also didn’t rule out a move away from the Dormaa-based side.

“I can’t expose my contract with Aduana on air but to tell everyone that I am a footballer and whoever comes for me with a good offer and terms, likely, I will join the team,” he added.

“I am pleading with the Kotoko fans to exercise patience with the coach and I believe with time all will be well.”
