Akwaffo Opts For Kessben


Francis AkwaffoDISGRUNTLED KOTOKO player Francis Akwaffo wishes to part ways with the club and begin a new life on loan with Kessben FC.  

Akwaffo has enjoyed little playing time at Kotoko since the beginning of the current season.   

The midfielder is certainly peeved about the development hence his craving to join the league leaders where he is optimistic to command a starting place.   

Kotoko management is said to have learnt about the player’s wish but they insisted they would allow him to leave if Kessben FC are prepared to buy him outright.

The relationship between Kotoko and Kessben has grown frosty due to the alleged stealthy attitude of Kessben with regard to poaching Kotoko players.

It would be recalled that Kotoko last week threatened to report the conduct of Kessben FC to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following an illegal pursuit of winger Francis Coffie.

In a strong-worded message, Kotoko’s Public Relations Officer, Ali Maradona, described the move by their regional rivals as ‘hypocritical’.

Coffie handed in a transfer request to officials of the club but Kotoko issued a ‘hands off’ warning to Kessben.

Ali Maradona said: “We are very furious with the way Kessben have been trying to induce Coffie and we will resist it with all the venom in us to ensure the proper thing is done”

“How on earth could a player send in a transfer request when Kessben have not made any formal bid for the player? We find that very insulting.

“Kessben must by now know how to buy a player and this tactics will not work and we will report them to the authorities if we have to.”

The winger is said to be unhappy with the limited playing time handed him by head coach of Kotoko, Paa Kwesi Fabin.

Kessben coach Bashir Hayford is believed to be an admirer of the 22-year-old and could swoop for him during the transfer window.
