Management member of Asante Kotoko Edmund Ackah says the club is solidly behind Dr. Amo Sarpong after he was temporarily banned from all football activities.
This comes after the bloody incident that occurred at Golden City Park when Chelsea played the Porcupine Warriors in match day eight of the competitions on Sunday.
Irate Berekum Chelsea fans attacked the Policy Analyst of Kotoko after he allegedly fired gun shots in the midst of confusion between the two clubs.
“The Asante Kotoko management will appear before the Disciplinary Committee to support Amo Sarpong. We welcome his temporary ban and for his own security he will comply with it till the case is heard,” Ackah told FOX FM in Kumasi.
According to Mr Ackah, there had been a false reportage on the incident which led to his colleague firing the warning shot, but he would refrain from discussing it while investigations were ongoing by the authorities.
“What I know (about the incident that led to Amo Sarpong pulling a pistol at Berekum) is a bit different from what has been reported out there. I will restrict myself a little because the case is with the Disciplinary Committee.
“His decision to pull out the gun was due to a mob attack on him by numerous fans of Berekum Chelsea,” he noted.
