“It’s true, Kotoko wanted to sign me last season, they sent me first offer, I said ‘no’, they sent second and third offer, I said ‘no’. We were talking, but later on, I saw that the money is not there.”
“I told them, Kotoko gave me the platform and I am ready to come and help. So, when [Kotoko chief executive officer] Nana Yaw Amponsah approached me, we spoke a lot about my coming back and I didn’t say no because I was willing to come back.
Inkoom, nonetheless, appeased the fans of Kotoko, saying that he will surely return to the club before retiring, even if it meant to play for free.
“I’m a fan of Kotoko and before I will even retire from football, I will come and play for Kotoko even if for nothing, I don’t mind.”
