Asante Kotoko players were held hostage for more than an hour by irate fans after they exited the CAF Champions League on Sunday, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.
The angry supporters besieged the entrance of the dressing room and attempted to prevent the players from leaving the stadium.
The security apparatus had a torrid time containing the fury of the disgruntled supporters who wanted to teach the players a bitter ‘lesson’.
Kotoko supporters have not recovered from their shock exit from the CAF Champions League after they were held 1-1 at home by Algerian side JSM Bejaia.
It was another failed attempt by the Ghanaian champions on their return to Africa elite-inter club competition with the blame game refusing to wash away.
While coach Mas-ud Draman and his players have come in for heavy fire, the management team of the club have not been spared the rod of criticism.
Executive Board chairman Dr Kof Kodua Sarpong has been at the centre of intense criticism following his selling policy which has seen as many as five key players leave the club.
