Outgone Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako, has bounced back into football administration following his appointed as the Executive Chairman of city rivals King Faisal.
The experienced administrator ended his three-year stay with the Porcupine Warriors and has since been in talks with Faisal in the past weeks to steer the club to greater heights.
Amoako’s move is a confirmation of week-long talks with the club’s top hierarchy on his role, and as well, a repeated feat on what happened in 2003 when he left Kotoko.
“It is true we have concluded talks and I will assume the role of Executive Chairman of the club, running the day-to-day activities with Alhaji Grusah remaining the bankroller, founder and President of King Faisal,” Amoako told Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM.
King Faisal, in addition to his confirmation on radio, welcome the former GHALCA General Secretary on their official Twitter handle.
✍️ We welcome our new Executive Chairman George Amoako to the club. He brings go to bear a rich vein of experience in the game.
We are grateful for having him in our fold. It is our prayer that our union will yield many successes in the years that follow.
Welcome King George!!! pic.twitter.com/IfKfYNbywU

This will seemingly water down concerns raised by a section of the administrators pushing for him to be ousted from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council after losing his job at Kotoko.
He is currently the Chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee.
