Kotoko Banned

By Daily Guide

The rowdy behaviour of Kotoko fans at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi recently has resulted in the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) slapping stiff disciplinary measures against the Ghana Champions.

The Porcupine Warriors have been banned from playing their first two home continental matches at their favourite Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi when the next Africa Champions league commences.

In addition, the Ghanaian Champions are being compelled by CAF to pay a cash fine of US $15,000.

CAF took the decision to punish Kotoko because its fans allegedly attacked Referee Cofie Kodjah who was in charge when the Reds were held 2-2 by Etoile Du Sahel in an Africa Confederation Cup duel in Kumasi recently.

A source who conveyed the message to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS said Kotoko's management has been duly informed about CAF's judgment and it accepted the decision in good faith.  

He noted that management of the Porcupine Warriors has thus decided to use the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra for the two matches.
