The rebuild is underway at Asante Kotoko after the Ghana Premier League club announced the departure of 11 players by mutual consent on Tuesday.

The Porcupine Warriors had high hopes for the 2023-24 season after they reappointed Prosper Narteh Ogum, who guided them to a record 24th league title two years earlier.

But Ogum’s return to the helm didn’t have the desired effect as the team won just 14 of their 34 matches to finish in sixth place, 12 points behind champions Samartex.

The Kumasi giants have started to trim the squad, with two goalkeepers, four defenders, one midfielder, three wingers and a striker making their exits.

Kalo Ouattara made the most appearances of the bunch, having featured 24 times last term and scoring just four goals up front.

Also included on the list are Danlad Ibrahim (13), Moise Pouaty (3), Augustine Agyapong (10), Sherif Mohammed (16), Nicholas Osei Bonsu (18), Serge Eric Zeze (22), George Mfegue (12), Nicholas Mensah (5) and Isaac Oppong (15).

“The Club is grateful for their services and wish them the very best for the future,” a statement from the two-time African champions read.
