Asante Kotoko CEO George Amoako Bemoans Hearts Fans Behaviour
Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko George Amoako has lamented on the behaviour of Hearts of Oak fans during his outfit's 2-0 win in the friendly encounter on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors inflicted a 2-0 defeat on their sworn rivals, to record back to back victory over the Phobians in the space of seven days - having recorded the same number of goals against them last week.
Striker Obed Owusu opened the scoring for the Reds after a swift counter-attacking football before Emmanuel Gyamfi sealed victory with a fine strike. Both goals came in the second half.
In the build-up to Asante Kotoko's opening goal, Hearts winger Patrick Razak was dispossessed off the ball in the Kotoko goal area by defender Agyemang Badu, which the fans believed should have merited a penalty but was waved off by referee Kwame Sefah.
The supporters of the Phobians vented their frustration on the official and started throwing missiles onto the pitch which led to the arrest of seven of their fans.
In an interview with Oyerepa FM, Asante Kotoko chief described the behaviours of their rival fans as 'vulgar' and called on the police service to deal drastically with the culprits.
"It's vulgar, uncalled for unnecessary. We have passed times to experience such behaviours."
"The police will deal with them to deter others from repeating such. We should not forget about May 9th."
"I hear they are complaining about officiating. Next time they should come with their referees. The referee didn't cheat any side, they had to play with only 9 on the field but the referee left them off the hook."
"That's going to be the trend henceforth, we will beat them anywhere we meet them, we will show them we are Kotoko."
