Veteran football administrator, Alhaji Grusah has taken a swipe at the just-released Asante Kotoko jersey, stating it is uncivilized to have the picture of their King on the both kits.
The Porcupine Warriors few days ago, unveiled their new Errea jerseys for the 2022/23 season and has got everyone talking in the country.
The home kit is as usual dominated by the team’s red colour with white strips, whiles the away replica was also designed with the Asanteman colours, thus green and yellow with club owner, His Royal Majesty Otumfour Osei Tutu II picture nicely printed on it.
However, the King Faisal FC founder sees it as totally uncouth to put Otumfour’s picture on the strips as he believes it undermines the greatness of the King and has asked the management of the club to go in for a change if possible. He told Kessben TV;
“It’s uncivilized to have put ‘Otumfour’ on the Kotoko jersey. In fact, it’s a village thing. Otumfour is more than that, he does not go to war and loose.”
“Maybe these Asantes don’t know how Otumfour is valued. Who doesn’t know he is the owner of the club? Which team does that in the world?”
“We put sponsors on jerseys. This is not maturity, they already done it but they can still go back and change it.” He concluded
