The Black Stars ‘B’ Management Committee Chairman Eddie Doku has revealed that they were not aware the Burkinabes holds a good record in Kumasi after the Black Stars ‘B’ lost to the local side of Burkina Faso in the 2018 CHAN qualifiers and only realised that after the sorrowful defeat.
The outspoken football administrator, who indicated on Kessben FM/TV that the local national team of Ghana were coming like ‘Kakai’ and that they ‘were taking over’ have made a u-turn after Ghana’s failure to make it to another edition of CHAN for the second consecutive tournament.
In an interview with Chris FM, a radio station based in Berekum, the GFA official said;
“We’ve all been thinking about how it was possible for them to defeat us at home because most of times when you play at home, you have the advantage”.
“It was only after the game that we learnt that anytime Burkinabes come to Ghana, especially in Kumasi, they see it as their second home”, he continued.
“We heard that even Kotoko, who are the landlords of Kumasi have never beaten Burkinabe clubs in Kumasi. All the Burkinabe clubs that have come to Kumasi always win, not even draw”, he lamented.
“You know Burkinabes are Moshie people and there are quite a number of Moshie people on the Kumasi soil so we give thanks to God for whatever has happened”, he was quick to conclude.
Ghana was beaten 2-1 in Kumasi after a 2-2 first leg at Ouagadougou ensuring that Burkina Faso made it to Kenya 2018 on a 4-3 aggregate scoreline.
