Controversial Asante Kotoko striker Yahaya Mohammed has finally broken his silence after leaving the club to sign a new deal in Libya.
He has apologised to the clubs’ teeming supporters claiming he feels sorry for his unprofessional behaviour.
The 25-year-old admits he didn’t act well by absconding the teams’ camp to sign a deal in Libya without seeking permission from the clubs’ hierarchy but insists that the fans and members must understand his situation and the circumstances leading to that.
In an exclusive interview with Kumasi-based Angel FM, Yahaya revealed that he did actually left the country to sign the pre-contract deal with Libyan side Ittihad Tripoli because Kotoko had denied him a 2-year contract extension he requested for.
“I feel sorry because I know it wasn’t the right thing to do but all I can say is that they must forgive me”.
“I offer my self up for any punishment and so if they decide to punish me, I will accept it in good fate and then ask them authorities to be lenient on the kind of sanctions too”.
“I have arrived and I will join the team in Kumasi and then see what the next action will be. As for me, I’m ready to play for the club till my contract expires whether in the reserve side or senior team”.
” I just want to win the league with the club again before I finally leave because I love Kotoko,” he added.
