Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nana Yaw Amponsah has been left angry following Ghana Football Association’s decision to postpone their game against AshantiGold SC.
The Porcupine Warriors were scheduled to be hosted at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium in the matchday 29 games later today.
In a statement by the FA, the game has been postponed based on advise from security agencies.
However, Nana Yaw Amponsah believes the Ghana Football Association shouldn’t have postponed the game between them and their regional rivals.
“The timing of the verdict of Ashantigold’s ban is irrelevant and the Ghana FA should have done further consultations before releasing the ban,” he told Peace FM.
He further stated that the decision will affect subsequent games of the Miners in the ongoing campaign.
“Banning Ashantigold in the middle of the season for match-fixing is not a good idea and if the FA thinks that’s what the club is doing then the ban will urge them to engage in more match manipulations”.
According to him, the Kotoko team arrived in Obuasi on Wednesday ahead of the Thursday clash and the decision to postpone the game at the eleventh hour is a bad thing to do.
“We were only informed on Wednesday evening about the postponement of the match against Ashantigold on Wednesday evening and that has destructed the team because we prepared adequately for the match and now the FA has spoiled everything and our plans.”
“So is the FA going to postpone all Ashantigold games from now on, if so then what was the essence of postponing our clash and I think they didn’t do due diligence on the release of the ban”.
“They should have waited for the season to end because we’re left with six matches to the end of the season.”
