Kotoko Management seek adequate security in Ivory Coast


The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, George Amoako has said that management of the club is taking steps to ensure that maximum security is provided for the team when they travel to Ivory Coast for the second leg of their CAF Confederations Cup match against FC San-Pedro of Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday.

Kotoko beat the Ivorian side 1-0 in the playoff first-leg in Kumasi on Monday.

The game at the Baba Yara Stadium was marred by an unjust attack on South African referee, Eugene Indluli by the away team.

The Ivorians have since reported to their fans that they were attacked in Kumasi and have threatened bloodshed when the Porcupines visit them.

Responding to how secured the Porcupines and the travelling fans will be in the neighbouring West African country amid fears of intimidation, George Amoako revealed that, Management will ensure that some security measures are taken for the duel.

“They came here with a strategy intending to provoke us for us to retaliate in a way that, they will have a cause to complain. We neither maltreated them nor did anything that could be described as such.

“They rather misbehaved. However, we are taking steps to ensure that there will be adequate security when we play in Abidjan,” he said.
