Ashgold's new signee Yaw Arnol has rendered an unqualified apology to Asante Kotoko trainer Maxwell Konadu after the latter swerved the Porcupines to join the Miners.
The 2016 MTN FA CUP best player completed a three-year deal with the Obuasi-based club Wednesday afternoon understanding a successful medical at the Dr Asafo Adjei Hospital in Kumasi.
The former Black Starlets Wideman was identified as a player capable of bolstering the Porcupines right-wing options with Maxwell Konadu an admirer of the winger.
He trained with the Reds but no deal was reached before he returned to join Bechem United ahead of the truncated league season.
Revealing what led to him choose the Obuasi-based club over Kotoko, Arnol said the transfer embargo placed on the Porcupines by the Asantehene left him with no option.
“I want to apologize sincerely to coach Maxwell Konadu for opting to sign for Ashantigold, it wasn’t my fault to do this.
He needed me badly at Kotoko but I’m sorry for disappointing him,” he noted in an interview with Kumasi based Kumasi FM.
“Though the deal couldn’t go through, I’m confident of succeeding at Ashantigold and I’m hopeful I will return to Asante Kotoko," he noted.
The 22-year-old moved to Spain to join second-tier side CF Fuenlabrada in 2017 after an impressive performance in the 2015/2016 football season.
