Asante Kotoko have expressed their profound disgust at the huge 'unreasonable' deductions from their record proceeds in Sunday's game against Hearts of Oak.

The Kumasi-based club were looking to cash-in on the over GH¢260,000 proceeds recorded from the 38,000 ticket sales in the big Ghanaian derby which they won in a grand stand finish.

However after several administrative and logistical deductions, Kotoko were handed the remaining kitty of GH¢120,000 Ghana Cedis and the club says this is completely unacceptable.

'Deductions of about 49% rate on our gate proceeds from all games is so inimical to the development of the club and therefore the game in general,' the club's Public and Supporters Relations manager Listowell Bukarson told

'Out of the gross of a little over 260, 000 the club bagged about GH¢120,000 with the rest going to these deductions.
