After Kotoko’s internal inquiry, it was confirmed that the player’s name had indeed been registered twice in the system.
Despite being a cherished figure among the fans, the player was subsequently sidelined and has not participated in any match for Kotoko since the discovery.
In the game against Accra Lions, Kotoko managed to secure a hard-fought 1-0 victory through Kalo Ouattara’s header. Accra Lions played a pivotal role in rescuing Kumasi Asante Kotoko from the potential consequences of a serious administrative error.
The issue surfaced when the Accra-based club uncovered that a midfielder for Kotoko had been registered twice within the Ghana Football Association’s system.
This revelation raised concerns that if Kotoko were to field the player against Accra Lions, the GFA could enforce point deductions against Kotoko if they emerged victorious.
Despite having the opportunity to exploit this situation to their advantage, Accra Lions displayed commendable sportsmanship.
Instead of capitalizing on the potential point deduction, the club urged Kotoko to conduct an internal investigation into the matter.
