I turned Hearts of Oak’s offer down because of Kotoko – Prosper Ogum


Prosper Narteh Ogum, the coach of Asante Kotoko, recently disclosed that he declined an offer to coach Hearts of Oak out of loyalty to his current club.

After leading the Porcupine Warriors to victory in the Ghana Premier League, Ogum unexpectedly departed from the team. However, he later returned to the club as part of the Interim Management Committee (IMC) after the Nana Yaw Amponsah-led management and Board of Directors were dissolved.

Despite Kotoko’s strong start to the season, the team has struggled in the second half, winning just one game out of the last five matches in the ongoing 2023/24 Ghana Premier League.

Despite these challenges, Dr. Ogum reiterated his dedication to Kotoko by revealing that he turned down an opportunity to coach Hearts of Oak before returning to the club.

“I was linked to the Hearts of Oak job; if I wanted to go, I would have done it,” he shared during an interview with Angel FM. “It was just there for me to go; they called me, they engaged me. I could have gone. I said no I will not go and they didn’t even understand why…It’s all about Kotoko,” he added.

Currently, Asante Kotoko is in 8th place on the league table with 32 points. They will host Nations FC in the Matchday 23 fixture at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday, with the match scheduled to kick off at 20:00 GMT.
