Kotoko’s Yahaya Mohammed: I’m Not stubborn

The beleaguered Porcupine Warrior says people have wrong impressions about him as a result of his dreadlocks but he remains one of the best to admire.

Asante Kotoko attacking midfielder Yahaya Mohammed has said people call him all sort of names because of his hair style.

The dread-locked player stated that his ‘Rasta’ hair sends wrong signals to outsiders that he is a rebel; instead he is a principled and disciplined person.

Mohammed has been frozen out by the Porcupine Warriors for going on AWOL to sign a pre-contract with Al Ittihad.

“People just don’t know me well that is why they say all kinds of things about me on radio. If you sit down to analyse what I do, you will never say Yahaya is stubborn,” the striker told Metro FM.

“In Ghana whenever there is a misunderstanding between an elderly person and a young one, it is concluded the young one is guilty, while the elderly person is innocent, but mostly they are guilty and similar thing is happening between me and the management of Kotoko.

“Soccer fans shouldn’t judge me by my Rasta hair and say I am bad to tarnish my image. Our perception about Rasta haired people is wrong that is why a thief nicely dressed in suit will hide a gun and rob us, while a Rasta man that we suspect him to do that will not attempt it.”

Mohammed was investigated by a three-man committee and will get to know his fate in the coming weeks.
