The General overseer of Christ Kingdom Ministry stationed at Ejisu- Adadientem new site Sofo Peter, has said that no striker currently at Asante Kotoko can break Eric Bekoe’s 17-goal record at the club.
Speaking to host Issac Owusu-Ansah on Ashh FM’s Super Sports Show, the man of God claimed that something ought to be done in the ‘spiritual world’ before a player at Kotoko can score more than 17 goals in a season.
He says: “No striker can score 17 goals at Kumasi Asante Kotoko again unless something is done about it. Since the days of Eric Bekoe, nobody has done it again. Bekoe was the goal king in Ghana with 17 goals that season. I said this about 10 to 12 years ago when Bekoe won the golden boot that season and since then, something has happened and if Kotoko does not do anything about it, no player will pass that 17 goal mark,”
He added that: ”They can go in for Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo but they can’t reach or pass Eric Bekoe’s goals at Kotoko.
“Alex Asamoah is the last player at Kotoko to win the goal king award with 16 goals, he couldn’t reach or pass the 17 goals scored by Bekoe.
”During Alex Asamoah’s era, I was his pastor, I told him there is a 17 goal barrier at Kotoko and if he doesn’t relax I could help him break the 17 goal barrier at Kotoko, he can never cross it. You can call Alex Asamoah and verify what am telling you”. Sofo Peter concluded.
Striker Kwame Poku currently leads the club’s top scorers chart with six goals in the ongoing 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season after matchday twelve- 12.
He would be hoping to add to his tally when Kotoko travel to Ayniase on Sunday to face leaders Karela United.
