Al Hilal - Asante Kotoko Clash: The Positive Results were Dubious - Asante Kotoko Allege

Asante Kotoko have indicated, the COVID-19 results that had some officials and players testing positive, were dubious and did not reflect the reality. 

This was contained in a press release dated 6th January, 2021, signed by acting Communications Director David Obeng Nyarko, to explain circumstances that led to the cancellation of the CAF Champions League preliminary round second leg, between Al Hilal of Sudan and Asante Kotoko of Ghana.

“The alleged dubious positive results had many suspecting features indicative of the fact that it did not reflect the reality on a true and proper medical grounds.”

It could be recalled that, when Asante Kotoko were getting ready to get into action with Al Hilal, at the Al Hilal Stadium, Omdurman, they were presented with COVID-19 results, which allegedly had 7 players and 4 officials testing positive for Covid-19.

An aggrieved Kotoko, quickly raised concerns about the results and sought redress.

Asante Kotoko have since lodged a formal complaint to the Confederation of African Football, CAF, through the Ghana Football Association, GFA.

The Ghanaian representative, is calling on club supporters and Ghanaians to remain calm since management is working to resolve the impasse.

“Let us assure our fans and Ghanaians that we shall use all legitimate means to ensure that the right things is done.”

“In the meantime, we have been asked to evacuate the stadium, pending a decision from CAF”, the statement added.
