Opoku Nti, a former player of Asante Kotoko has commended the board of directors and is hoping to earn a permanent role.

“I thank the board for having confidence in me and extending my mandate handed me for three more months to see to the day to day running of Kotoko,” he told Joy sports

“I have gone through the first stage and another three months has been added.

“As for the confirmation it will come as and when the Board is pleased with my performance.”

In the league Kotoko will play their first game on Sunday against Aduana Stars .
