“Kotoko Should Know How To Honour Their Heroes.”- Malik Jabir

Former Kotoko player, Abdul Malik Jabir has levelled criticisms against the club with respect to how legends of the club are managed.

The bashing comes after former Kotoko star Opoku Afriyie died on Sunday in Kumasi at age 75, and Jabir believes Kotoko should have given Afriyie a role in the current set up of the club.

”Clubs elsewhere cherish their former players, brings them near their current players ahead of matches but what do we see with our Kotoko,” Jabir told Oyerepa FM.

”Kotoko could have done better with Opoku Afriyie especially when he played and also become a team manager and a management member.

”He could have been given a role in the team. They should not think old players of the club want positions when we speak but we want the best for the club.

”I have held all positions in the club, played, was a team manager, coach, CEO and also a board member. Is it a ball boy I want to be?

”Kotoko should know how to honour their heroes.” He added.

Opoku Afriyie is largely remembered for his time with Kotoko and Hearts of Oak as he emerged top scorer in the Ghana domestic football league in 1979 and 1981.
