Kotoko Show Love To Hearts
Asante Kotoko put aside the perennial rivalry that exists between them and Hearts of Oak by extending a helping hand to the latter's injured goalkeeper Philemon Mac-Cathy.
The Red Army called on the young goalkeeper at his Kotobabi residence a day after their arrival from Kumasi for their game against Mighty Jets.
Mac-Cathy injured his ring finger eight days ago after pushing aside a Daniel Nii Adjei grounder when Kotoko hosted Hearts at the Baba Yara Stadium.
And expressing love to his colleague, Kotoko Captain Daniel Nii Adjei presented a cash prize of GH¢200 and a special get well soon card bearing signatures of the playing body as well as the technical team.
In like manner, Kotoko chief Dr Kofi Kodua Sarpong presented GH¢200 cash prize to the Phobian goalie.
Alhaji Hearts aka Suleman Braimah, who stood in for the club's CEO Fred Crentsil, thanked the Porcupine Warriors profusely for the gesture, saying, 'This is a demonstration of love. It shows we are not enemies, after our games on the pitch, we are friends.
'I thank you very much on behalf of my CEO who asked me to represent him and the entire Hearts family,' he added.
Mac-Cathy is expected to return to the pitch this week.
