CAF CL: Suffocated Asante Kotoko SC Heads To CAS, Set For Legal Showdown With CAF

Badly bruised Asante Kotoko SC are heading to the game’s highest legal machinery after their reported unfair treatment by Confederation of African Football CAF and Al Hilal.

The two times CAF Champions league winners were ruthlessly bundled of out of Africa’s premier club championship under the disguise of COVID 19 pandemic.

A painful 0-1 reverse in the first leg paved way for the decisive return leg in Omdurman only for seven players of the Ghanaian side to have been forcefully tagged with COVID 19 virus.

The huge number left Asante Kotoko SC with less than 15 players required to start the game according to CAF rules and regulations.

Leading marksman for the Ghanaian side, Kwame Poku, who was part of the seven players tagged with the virus, had different results from the testing units.

With less than the required number of players to compete in the game, CAF boldly declared Al Hilal winners without listening to official pleas from the Ghanaian side.

The lopsided decision didn’t go well with top ranking management of Asante Kotoko SC as the club heads to Court of Arbitration of Sports (CAS) to seek redress.

Supporting documents from the club confirmed why the club felt badly handled in a nightmare trip to Sudan.

The legal machinery of Asante Kotoko SC will initiate the process of filing in their case at CAS when they return later today, Friday, January 8, 2021.

The Ghanaian side won the CAF Champions league in 1970 and 1983 but have so far struggled to even make the group stages since 2008.
