Kumasi Asante Kotoko has been hit with match fixing scandal after football administrator, Nana Oduro Sarfo revealed the club’s match against Liberty Professionals was fixed.
Oduro Sarfo who is the manager of Kotoko’s goal keeper Ernest Sowah made this revelation on Fox FM in Kumasi in response to the controversy surrounding his client and the club in relation to the same match.
The vociferous football man has emphatically accused the management of Asante Kotoko of an attempt to fix a league match with officials of Liberty Professionals, but the Dansoman based club refused.
Liberty surprisingly beat Kotoko 2-1 at the tail of the 2017 league season in Accra, at a time when Liberty was at a point of being relegated. Reports indicated that the CEO of Asante Kotoko accused his own goalkeeper on the day Ernest Sowah of having taken bribe from Liberty to concede ‘cheap’ goals that gave out the 3 maximum points at stake.
In response to the said allegations, Sowah’s manager Nana Oduro Sarfo has rather placed the accusations at the door steps of the Kotoko management, challenging them to dare him by publicly denying the allegations and he would return with much more jaw breaking evidences.
“Kotoko management were calling Liberty professionals officials prior to the match with the offer to fix the match but were refused”, Oduro Sarfo claimed.
“They should dare me and I will reveal further things to their dismay, Liberty are very angry at Kotoko for that accusations they levelled against Sowa ,and if Liberty should open up now Kotoko will be left broke”, he continued.
Kotoko has excluded the experienced goal keeper from their list of players for their 2018 Confederations Cup Campaign. Sowah has also called on the management of the club to cancel his contract which has one year left to serve.
