Fans of Ghanaian club West African Football Academy in their press release have warned Kumasi Asante Kotoko and their fans not to engage themselves in any form of hooliganism as they prepare to visit the ‘land of peace’ on Wednesday.
Kotoko fans on match day 3 in a game against Berekum Chelsea engaged themselves in all sort of misconducts which led to a police officer openly firing a rubber bullet to supporters of Kotoko at the Baba Yara sports stadium. The club, aftermath of that suffered a three home-match ban with a fine of 20,000 Ghana cedis by the GFA.
This unsporting and unprofessional conduct orchestrated by the fans of the Kumasi based club has prompted WAFA Supporters Union to release ‘warning shot’ prior to their meeting at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope.
The press release signed by the president of the union, Yohanes Nugbe Hadzor read: Despite the FA’s attempt to stop hooliganism in the league, it is an undoubted fact that the fans of Asante Kotoko do not support the FA’s effort.
Taking in account their recent actions in the ongoing premier league, we deemed in necessary to caution them ahead of their visit to the land of peace (Red Bull Arena, Sogakope) on February 5,2020.
“Don’t come here with that assertiveness, considering the fact that Accra Hearts of Oak took a point here during their recent visit.
We urge all football loving fans most especially, fans of Asante Kotoko to come in peace and enjoy the beautiful game of soccer and victory of the lads.
Both sides meet on match day 8 in the ongoing premier league in what promises to be an entertaining game of football. Asante Kotoko and WAFA currently sit 5th and 7th respectively on the table after match day 7.
