The shot-stopper has departed the Porcupine Warriors, bringing to an end a ten-year stay at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium
Asante Kotoko has mutually terminated their contract with captain Felix Annan ahead of the start of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season, AshesGyamera.com can reveal.
The 26-year-old joined the Porcupine Warriors in 2011 as a teenager from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord Academy and although he was sent out to several clubs on loan, he has later risen through the ranks to become the club’s captain.
However, he fell out of favour with the club’s former coach Maxwell Konadu last season and although Konadu was sacked, Annan later fell out with the club’s top hierarchy.
He thus lost his place to Kwame Baah and later Razak Abalora and that affected his involvement in the senior national team.
Although Annan stayed on and tried to fight for a starting place in Kotoko’s squad, it proved fruitless and he has decided to leave the club after ten years. He has become the third player to leave Kotoko after Augustine Okrah and Naby Keita.
Annan, who is currently in United Kingdom, is expected to join his wife in United States of America. Should plans of securing any club fails abroad, he could highly join Medeama ahead of the new season.
He made his Ghana debut in 2019 against Namibia in an international friendly.
