Asante Kotoko legend, Malik Jabir says the club has neglected its old players from managing or taking active part in their current administration.
Malik Jabir made this comment in response to how current management members of the the club do not consult or seek advice from old players or club legends.
He was speaking on Asante Kotoko’s issue were players had to boycott training on Tuesday morning due to unpaid entitlements.
According to Malik Jabir, the presence of club legends or old players in the team could have helped dilute the situation because of their experience.
Speaking in an interview on Wamputu Sports on Happy 98.9 FM with Odiasempa Kwame Oware, he said, “What happened to Asante kotoko is unfortunate. We haven’t heard this before.
“Before they register a player they should make some checks and consider how loyal he is to the club.
“We (old players) are not worried if we are part of Kotoko or not. Now the current management doesn’t want any old player near the team but we are not worried at all. Now that we are alive they should make use of us”.
On the playing boycotting training ahead of the game he said, “We can’t say much because they have a game ahead. They should have thought about it or be patient. Now they should think about the aftermath of what they did if they win or loose”
