Kotoko midfielder Kwame Bonsu is unhappy with his continues description as an ex-convict.
A session of Ghanaian football fans to much extend the media tag the former Mjällby AIF star as an ex-convict after the player served a year behind the bars in Sweden for an alleged rape incidence.
Bonsu who completed his sentence last year came back stronger to relaunch his career by signing for Kotoko.
The 24-year-old ever since joining the Porcupine Warriors has been one of the favorites helping them in their CAF Confederation Cup campaign.
The player has lamented on the situation he finds himself.
“I have actually moved on to be honest, sometimes reading those kind of headlines makes me feel some kind of hatred for my ex or the country (Sweden) I came from,” he told Silver FM in Kumasi.
“But I can’t change how people think, what people want to write. Sometimes they want to get the attention of their readers but I don’t think this should be the situation.
“At least I’m a Ghanaian; we should protect our own. It’s not about pleading; it’s about time we need to grow.
“I’m not saying this for people to feel pity for me, no!
“I have psyched myself and I know what to achieve in life. People can write say what they want and how they want based on what they know or think.
“But at the end of the day is their problem, not mine. I just focus on the positive things.”
Kotoko Coach CK Akonnor named the former Gefle IF midfielder in his squad to face ZESCO United on Sunday.
