Kotoko midfielder Kwame Bonsu ‘Conte’ has written an emotional letter to say goodbye to the Kotoko management and fans.
Conte, 24, posted the emotional letter on his twitter feed after his move to Egyptian giants Esperance was made official.
The emotional letter read;
“I will first of all like to thank God for my life. It’s with mixed emotions that I am writing this message,” he wrote.
“To everyone at Asante Kotoko SC, the management, the technical team, medical team, to my teammates and of course to the fantastic fans who made me feel so special. It was a short but amazing journey with this great club.”
“It is with enormous sadness that I must say goodbye. I will miss you all and wishing you the best of luck for the future,” he concluded.
Conte joined Kotoko on his return to Ghana from Sweden and signed a 3-year deal ahead of the club’s campaign in the CAF Confederations Cup.
He was an integral part of Kotoko’s team in that tournament and won the hearts of fans and the general football loving community with his outstanding performances at the heart of the midfield.
Having formed an ideal partnership with Richard Senanu,who later got injured, Conte endeared himself to the Kotoko faithful and soon he got his big break.
Hi,s performances caught the eye of national team coach Kwesi Appiah, who gave him a call up ahead of the Black Stars’ games against Kenya and Mauritania.
Bonsu made his debut for the Black Stars against Mauritania but however missed out on making the final 23 man squad for the African Cup of Nations.
He also was part of the Kotoko team that won the Tier 1 of the Normalisation Committee Special Competition.
Conte now follows in the footsteps of another Kotoko great, Harrisson Afful,in making the switch to Esperance.
