Amos Frimpong, captain of Asante Kotoko has admitted his admiration for new chairman Dr. Kwame Kyei.
“The little that I have seen, I am very optimistic that he (Dr. Kyei) has got a huge chunk of ambitions for the club….so if God permits and we give him our support everything will go on well for Asante Kotoko,” he added.
The hardworking fullback said this in an interview with Osei Akoto Kanu on Otec FM’s flagship sports program – The Royal Sports..
Frimpong said: “Management has assured us they will put everything in place for it to have a positive effect on us – on the field of play.
“Am hoping very soon we will meet Dr. Kwame Kyei to deliberate on issues concerning the club.
Amos Frimpong also confirmed he is currently locked down in negotiations with Nigerian giants Enyimba FC regarding a possible transfer.
The 25-year-old is expected to be given a significant amount of money if he agrees to move to the fold of the Aba Warriors.
Initial talks between the Nigerians and Asante Kotoko representatives began last week but a deal wass not reached.
“It is true that we are currently locked down in negotiations, but we are yet to agree on anything. We are looking at the terms involved, whether it will favor both Asante Kotoko and myself,”he confirmed.
Frimpong will become the second Ghanaian at Enyimba after Black Stars goalkeeper Fatau Dauda signed the dotted lines for the Aba-based side last Friday.
Commenting on the 2015/2016 Ghana Premier League awards, Amos Frimpong revealed that he is unperturbed to have missed out on the Best Defender of the Year award despite a neck-turning campaign with the Porcupine Warriors.
Frimpong, 25, had a fantastic season, scoring eight goals in 24 appearances to end the season as Kotoko’s top-scorer.
He could, however, not shaked off competition from Hearts of Oak marksman, Inusah Musah as the latter claimed the individual accolade at the awards gala held on Friday at the State Banquet Hall in Accra.
“Before the awards I granted several interviews, that all the three players who were nominated performed very well, so we made up our mind we will give our support to the person who will emerge winner,’’ he revealed.
“But I was actually optimistic that I could win the best defender award, looking at my performance it was up to the billing, even though my other colleagues also performed very well. But I thought I was going to clinch the award this time around.
“However, I am not disappointed because only the officials knew the criteria they used in giving out the award,” he added.
