Legend Hossam assaults Bekoe

Ghanaian striker Eric Bekoe Ghanaian striker EricBekoe claims he wants to quit Egyptian side Petrojet after he was beaten by Egypt football legend Hossam Hassan who now handles Telecom Egypt in the League.

Bekoe scored for Petrojet in a 2-2 with Telecom on Monday and believes to have taunted the Ex-Pharoahs captain with his celebration.

The former Asante Kotoko forward was heckled and was continuously hit in the tunnel at half-time.

After the match, there was a open-to-all brawl between the players of both teams in a reaction to the half-time incidence.

The Egyptian Football Association has launched an investigation into the melee and if found guilty, Hassan could face a ban.

“He was saying I was sent to do something for him to get annoyed but in Ghana whenever we score goal, we do the sign of the cross and say hi to the fans and that was what I actually did,” Bekoe told Ghanasoccernet.com

“When it was half time and I was going to the dressing room I was him standing but I wasn’t having anything in mind.

“Before I realize he held my right ear and he was pulling and started kicking me around so the Policemen and others came to save me.”
