Kotoko must respect coach’s contract – Taylor

Former Asante Kotoko playmaker Charles Taylor is unhappy with the current situation at the Kumasi-based club.

The Porcupine Warriors have won just a game in six matches in the Ghana Premier League this season, consequently condemning them to the bottom of the standings.

Following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Aduana Stars, the management of the club asked coach David Duncan to “step aside until further notice” – a decision not backed by the club’s board.

The coach has also refused to leave his role, asking to be either outrightly sacked or be allowed to continue with his job.

“The management of the club faulted in their decision,” Taylor told GhanaFans.

“There is a contract between the club and the coach which ought to be adhered to.

“There is so much misunderstanding in the club especially between the management, and that is affecting them on and off the field.

“It is unheard of for management to take such a decision without the board of the club.”

Taylor played for Hearts of Oak between 2000 and 2003 after joining from city rivals Great Olympics, before controversially transferring to Kotoko.

He also featured for Ghana at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, and the 2009 African Nations Championship.
