His acting price was ‘outrageous’ – Nana Yaw Amponsah opens up on ‘failed’ Matthew Anim-Cudjoe deal

Asante Kotoko CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah has opened up on his side’s failure to resign wonderkid Matthew Cudjoe for Kotoko stressing that his agent demanded $250,000 for his services.

Cudjoe joined the Porcupine Warriors last season on a loan and won the heart of the supporters as one of the club’s best players.

The 17-year-old has been deemed one of Ghana’s brightest prospects after putting up great performances especially against Hearts of Oak last season.

Currently, he features for Legon Cities on loan.

In an interview with Oyerepa FM, Nana Yaw Amponsah explained why he did not rejoin the club.

Speaking on the clubs inability to secure the player in an interview with Oyerepa FM, Nana Yaw Amponsah said his management did all they could to resign the player, but his agent refused to accept Asante Kotoko’s offer.

“Mathew Anim Cudjoe’s agent was demanding $250,000 for loan deal but the coach didn’t want a loan player. I spoke to Samuel Anim Addo that the money was huge but he still demanded such amount”

Kotoko wanted to sign the young player on a permanent deal following his expiration of the loan spell. Cudjoe emerged as one of Kotoko’s best players during the truncated 2019/20 season.

The 17-year-old is best remembered by Kotoko supporters for his brilliant performance in the 2-1 victory over Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium. He won the penalty which led to Kotoko’s favour on the matchday.

Cudjoe currently plies his trade for Legon Cities, joining them on transfer deadline day. It is believed that Cudjoe was included in Asamoah Gyan’s big-money deal since Anim Addo is the business manager of the legendary Black Stars striker.
