Reacting to the ruling, Lawyer Ntow cautioned that Kumasi-based club that they should always seek legal advise before taking certain decisions.
There is a problem with the way Kotoko is being managed. As a club, if you want to take a decision you have to consult your lawyer. You cannot act, commit and create the mess before calling the lawyer to come and salvage the situation.
According to the lawyer, Kotoko will be paying his client around GHC 400,000.
