Abdul Razak, 1978 Footballer of the Year has revealed why he left Asante Kotoko after leading them to secure the Ghana Premier League title in 2003.
Razak became the first coach to win the Ghana Premier League title with Asante Kotoko in 2003 since its inception in the 1993/94 season.
“The management of Kotoko at the time asked me to sign a new contract, but I gave it to my manager Jones Abu Alhassan to study it and I told them to wait for a while before the decision to put pen to paper," he told Pulse Ghana in an interview.
“After the league success Otumfuo invited us and when we met him in the company of some of the sub-chief, they all praised us for the good job done.
“However, when the management was asked to render an account, they stated that they bought some of the games we won and that contributed to the success we chalked.
“Looking at the calibre of players I had I couldn’t let them attribute our league triumph to match-fixing, so I had issues with the management and I had to leave”.
