Aged 27, Emmanuel Frimpong has become African football’s youngest Chief Executive – taking the role at Ashanti Gold following the departure of Frederick Acheampong.
Having achieved that – his father is the club’s owner – he has set his target on making Ashanti Gold the biggest club in Ghana.
The president of Ashanti Gold wanted someone who had the club’s interest at heart and looked no further than his son.
“I’m regarded as the youngest CEO in African football. It is a privilege but it is a big task,” Frimpong Jr told BBC Sport Africa.
“I know I am going to get the job done. I am going to get Ashanti Gold to the next level.” .
Frimpong said his ambitions for the club include having at least five players who are part of the Ghana national team, the Black Stars. (Text, photo by BBC)
