Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, Nana Yaw Amponsah believes the club was successful in the just ended season despite ending the campaign without a trophy.

According to the young football administrator, the club had to play under extremely difficult conditions, which includes playing all their home games away from the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

In an interview with Oyerepa FM, he said he will consider the season as a success after finishing the league in second place and getting eliminated in the last eight of the FA Cup.

"We were successful in the just ended season but that wasn't our target. The target was to at least win the league title," he told Oyerepa FM.
"We had a better away results than Hearts of Oak but our home performance wasn't the best. Playing our games in Accra and Obuasi didn't help us.
"We paid Gh¢ 10,700 per each home game at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi."

Asante Kotoko finished second behind Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League and were bundled out of the MTN FA Cup after losing on penalties to Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors will be breaking camp in the coming days before pre-season starts for next season.

The record Ghana Premier League champions will however return to their favorite home grounds, the Baba Yara Stadium, in the 2021/22 season.
