Felix Annan: Asante Kotoko goalkeeper bids emotional farewell to the club .

Kumasi Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan has penned down an emotional farewell to the club after bringing his 10 year spell to an end. Annan confirmed he has mutually parted ways with the Reds with a post on social media thanking the club and supporters. The 26-year-old joined the Porcupine Warriors in 2011 from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord Academy and although he was sent out to several clubs on loan, he later rose through the ranks to become the club’s captain.

He thus lost his place to Kwame Baah and later Razak Abalora and that even affected his involvement in t...
