Kotoko To Form Committee To Investigate Accused Goalkeeper Soulama
Asante Kotoko will form a committee to investigate the alledged bribery scandal that has rocked their CAF Champions league exit at the hands of lowly rated side BYC of Liberia involving goakleeper Soulama Abdoulaye.
Goalkeeper Soulama, 33 has been accused of conceding a cheap goal in their 1-0 defeat in Monrovia which ensured the Liberians qualified to the next phase of the qualifying campaign.
The Burkinabe shot-stopper is rumoured to have been influenced to throw their CAF Champions League return leg away against Barrack Young Controllers but chairman of Kotoko’s African cup committee Alhaji Lamine insist they will look into the issue.
“We did our best and tried to win the game by all means because we were so determined”.
“The players did their best throughout the game and they played their hearts out but we conceded a very cheap goal which I will say was a technically bad goal”.
“We have heard about those bribery allegations and we wouldnt let it go..We will form a committee to look and investigate into the matter seriously and bring out the truth”.
Barrack Young Controllers President Sekou Konneh has lashed at allegations of bribery in their CAF Champions League win over Asante Kotoko.
The Liberian club scored late to progress in the Champions League on the away goals rule having been beaten 2-1 in the first leg against the Ghanaian champions.
