Kumasi-based outfit Asante Kotoko have expressed their disappointment in the Ghana Football Association for their lack of financial support in their CAF Champions League campaign.
Asante Kotoko, the record holders of the Ghanaian top flight, have endured a frosty relationship with the Kurt Okraku led Ghana Football Association.
It would be recalled the Porcupine Warriors in their first league game of the season against Techiman Eleven Wonders were nearly barred from using their Veo technology from filming their game for educational and technical purposes – which led to a back and forth in the public domain and eventually a consensus was arrived after a stakeholders meeting forcing the GFA to make a u-turn in their earlier stance.
Additionally, the impasse received a different twist following Kotoko’s request to change their match venue from the Accra Sports stadium to the Aliu Mahama stadium in Tamale was rebuffed by the federation.
Expressing his dissatisfaction an unhappy Communications Manager of Asante Kotoko, Moses Antwi Benefo lamented about the lack of support from the football Association.
“The club Asante Kotoko SC is not happy.”
“The previous administration gave $30,0000 to clubs going to Africa but we haven’t received even a pesewa from the GFA,” he told Accra-based Asempa FM.
Meanwhile the club will be training this morning ahead of their return leg tie against Mauritania champions FC Nouadhibou.
