New Diaspora and International relations Manager for Kumasi Asante Kotoko Akosua Dentaa Amoateng MBE, has revealed the presence as a female on the management team is to challenge more females into football.
As Founder of GUBA Enterprise, Dentaa says her new role despite being in football and being a lover of football is to make a statement to all females who love sports especially football to come into football management with the confidence.
In an interview with PJ Mosey on Nhyira 104.5 FM in Kumasi, the former manager for ex-Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan is hopeful that the new challenge offered should see a new path being created as Akua Pokuaa Kwarteng (Domestic Legal Affairs head) doubles up as another female to help new CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah realize his vision for the Kumasi-based outfit.
“The way the world is going now; in everything you need female attraction. One of our goals is to ensure that I and Akua (Pokuaa Kwarteng) deliver because we are the only females on the team so there is a lot of pressure on us because you hardly see it,” the renowned TV show host told Nhyira FM.
“We will make sure that we deliver our responsibilities better so we can attract those women who support football to come and be part of it and to showcase that football is for everyone, for kids, women, men and it brings everybody together. We are going to use our influence to make sure that diversity is brought on to Kotoko,” Dentaa concluded.
The renowned TV show host is expected to work closely with Commercial Manager Eric Amoako-Twum to place the Kotoko brand on an enviable pedestal across the globe.
