Public Relations Officer of Asante Kotoko, Kennedy Boakye Ansah has revealed that the club was forced to get rid of Fatawu Safiu, who didn’t want to return after trials in Sweden.
According to Boakye-Ansah, the $15000 opening offer from Helsinborgs IF was insulting so they asked the striker to return which he refused.
In the end, the Porcupines finally lost patience and decided to accept an initial loan deal with an option to buy for a paltry sum of $35000.
“The player didn’t want to return to Ghana so we had no choice but to allow him go for the loan which we are getting $35000” the PRO told Oyerepa FM.
“The previous offer from Helsinborg IF was insulting so we asked him to return but the player didn’t want to and wasn’t ready to return,”
“Playing in the CAF Champions League would have increased his value but his actions and inactions showed he wasn’t interested,so we had to cash in and the money should be in by now”
