Maxwell Konadu claims a lack of unity was the reason why Kumasi Asante Kotoko did not win the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League.
Asante Kotoko were leading the league with seven points but eventually lost the title to fierce rivals, Hearts of Oak by four points.
Konadu, who started the season with Kotoko but was relieved of his duty in December, claims the cause of the club’s downfall was disunity amongst the players, and other management officials.
When asked what caused the team’s downfall in an interview on Nhyira FM sighted by YEN.com.gh, he said, “there was no unity.”
When probed further he retorted;
"There was no unity among the players, technical team and all those who matter at the club. You can tell from all the issues that has been reported in the media, I think there was no unity."
The Porcupine Warriors also failed in their attempt to defend their FA Cup title when they lost to Berekum Chelsea in the quarterfinal.
Mariano Barreto who replaced Konadu is under pressure and reports suggest he might be let go of his duty at the club.
Konadu is now the coach of Legon Cities and barely helped them to avoid relegation in the just ended Ghana Premier League.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that, Christian Atsu, has said Ghanaians should stop comparing current Black Stars strikers to Asamoah Gyan.
Asamoah Gyan who captained the Black Stars, is the leading scorer for the senior men's national team with 51 goals.
This has led to Atsu coming to the defence of the current strikers, claiming focus should be given to the young players who are coming up now instead of comparing them to their predecessors.
