Obed Nana Kwame Nketia, the Chief Executive Officer for Berekum Chelsea has stated his side had vengeance against Kotoko, as they humiliated them 3-0 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Berekum Chelsea managed to beat the Porcupine Warriors at their own backyard on Sunday to register their first away win in 32 games through Kofi Owusu’s brace and another from Fumador to seal victory.
Kotoko secured an away point against Berekum Chelsea on match day 9 of the First Capital Plus Premier league, but followed it with a protest in an attempt to earn additional 2 points arguing that the Berekum lads failed to meet the deadline for settling monies owed WAFA over the transfer of Solomon Asante to T.P Mazembe.
Although, Chelsea lost the protest and had several point deducted, they managed to get their points back through an appeal.
The CEO for Berekum Chelsea is bitter about the way Kotoko treated his side by filing a protest with the Disciplinary Committee and also alleged that the current Kotoko management persuaded some of his players not to renew their contract, which enabled them to leave on a free transfer to the Kumasi outfit.
“We told our playing body to exercise much seriousness in our game against Kotoko to avenge what they did against us with regards to the protest and also ensured Jackson Owusu and Ahmed Adams joined them on free transfer.
“The current Kotoko administration wanted to deny me of my daily bread and we were aggrieved with that, so I am happy yesterday was a pay back time,” he told Metro fm.
The 0-3 defeat is Kotoko’s worst in Kumasi against a non Kumasi side ,in the history of the league.
