The First Vice President of the Spanish giants is in Ghana to discuss and finalise agreement to play the Ghanaian powerhouse next May in an anniversary game.
According to Kotoko’s Communications Director Lawyer Sarfo Duku, the club’s Executive Board Chairman and new CEO George Amoako held a meeting with the Barcelona top official and organisers of the game on Friday morning.
“I can say on authority that Executive Board Chairman Dr Kwame Kyei and CEO George Amoako are in a meeting with vice President of Barcelona in Accra,” he told Kessben FM.
