Kotoko end Gyan and Cudjoe’s chase

Published

on

Ghana Premier League side, Asante Kotoko, have ended their desire to sign Asamoah Gyan and Matthew Anim Cudjoe.

The Ghana legend, Gyan, was heavily linked to the Ghana Premier League giants ahead of the new football season.

The 34-year-old has openly declared his interest to play for the club before he finally hangs his boots.

However, according to media reports, Gyan was demanding a whopping $400,000 before he signs for the club.

The former Sunderland forward has been clubless after leaving Indian Super League side, NorthEast United FC.

With Matthew Anim Cudjoe, the camp of the player was hoping for an improved offer for the youngster after impressive performance at the club.

According to reports, Kotoko were asked to pay $250,000 before the 16-year-old signs a new deal with the club.

The nimble-footed forward’s contract expired following the nullification of the 2019/20 football season following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Cudjoe was one of the most exciting young talents on the local scene as he featured prominently in Maxwell Konadu’s side.

The youngster made six appearances for Kotoko and scored a goal in their 2-0 win over Ebusua Dwarfs in a fifth-week league fixture.

A fan favourite, Cudjoe has had trials with European giants Bayern Munich.

However, Asante Kotoko have signed new players ahead of the 2020/21 football season and will pitch camp in Koforidua.

The Ghana Premier League will represent the country in the Caf Champions League.

Bartomeu finally resigns as Barcelona president

Published

on

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned, with the entire board also stepping down from their posts.

Bartomeu’s decision comes after several months of criticism in the wake of Barcelona’s 8-2 Champions League elimination to Bayern Munich, as well as Lionel Messi’s shock request to leave the club shortly after.

Although the club was able to keep hold of Messi, with the longtime Barca star staying to avoid having to take the club to court, Bartomeu’s position has been under scrutiny for months.

The president had been due to officially end his tenure next year, with elections called for March, but the club’s members called for a vote of no confidence in an effort to get Bartomeu out immediately.

A total of 20,687 votes were gathered for the motion against Bartomeu, passing the threshold of 16,250 signatures required for the vote to go ahead.

The Barca board repeatedly tried to postpone the vote but, on Monday, local authorities rejected the club’s push to delay the proceedings.

As a result, the vote was set to go ahead in the coming weeks, but will no longer be necessary as Bartomeu and the board have stepped down.

Bartomeu originally joined Barca during Joan Laporta’s presidency and ascended to that role himself in January 2014.

He replaced Sandro Rosell, becoming the 40th President of Barcelona as he signed on to complete the rest of Rosell’s tenure following his resignation.

During his time in charge, Barca won La Liga four times as well as the 2014-15 Champions League, but his time in charge will largely be defined by the club’s failings in his final seasons.

Having struggled to find value in the transfer market since Neymar’s departure to join Paris Saint-Germain, Barca finished the 2019-20 season trophyless.

Their 8-2 loss to Bayern only furthered unrest, with Messi’s request to leave proving the final straw for the president.
