Grunsah picked up for assualt

King Faisal's Alhaji Karim Grunsah is not only rueing his side's defeat to cit rivals, Asante Kotoko but also the outspoken club founder is faced with the tough task of dealing with an alleged assault charge.

The King Faisal founder hogged the spotlight for all the wrong reasons on Sunday as he is alleged to have assaulted a Police officer on duty at the Coronation park in Sunyani during recess of his side's game with Asante Kotoko on Sunday.

Alhaji Karim Grunsah in a fit of rage stormed the field and surged towards FIFA referee, Reginald Lathbridge who had ended the first half. But he was prevented by security men on duty.

In the ensuring scuffle, Alhaji Grunsah is reported to have flung his palm into the face of one of the officers on duty.

And he was immediately arrested and moved away by the security officers.

Hours of the game, Grunsah was released and asked to report to the regional Police command on Monday as investigations continue.

Asante Kotoko came from a goal down to beat King Faisal 3-1 at the Coronation park.

Faisal took the lead in the 8 minute through Micky Ofosu who nodded home a cross from Kweku Essien.

However, Asante Kotoko drew level with Emmanuel Osei Kuffour equalising in the 21 minute.

In the second half, the Porcupine Warriors increased the tally to 2-1 through Francis Akwaffo before Daniel Bomfa sealed the game for Kotoko with the third goal.

The defeat was the second consecutive loss by King Faisal at home in four days.
