Portuguese coach Mariano Baretto had blasted the club for not having washrooms and other facilities needed to run a big team like Kotoko.

He went on to say the club is just big in name but lacked a lot as a top modern football team.

"For a big club like Kotoko, I can't fathom how our players come to training and have to go to toilet and urinate in the bush,” Baretto said on Nhyira FM.

Coach Mariano Baretto has returned to his native, Portugal, and he is yet to return for the start of pre-season at Asante Kotoko.

Meanwhile, there have been reports that the Porcupine Warriors are going in for former Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah, a news Nana Yaw Amponsah couldn't confirm nor deny.

Asante Kotoko are hoping for a better campaign in the upcoming season after finishing the 2021/22 season without a trophy.

Nana Yaw Amponsah has been given a three year mandate to run the club and turn them into one of the best on the continent.

The new Ghana Premier League season begins on October 29, 2021.
