Spokesperson of Medeama SC Patrick Akoto has downplayed public opinion that tags Medeama as a bad luck football team following the cancellation of the current Ghana Premier League.
Medeama – coached by young tactician Samuel Boadu – were just a point adrift league leaders Aduana Stars after Week 15 and had defeated both Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak in Tarkwa.
The team of Moses Parker were seen as credible league winners this term but the impact of Covid-19 forced the GFA to cancel the season.
Two years ago the same club were top of the league table after Week 14 but the Anas Number 12 Expose forced the suspension of the league completely denying the team – formerly known as Kessben FC – the chance to win their first ever league title.
Akoto was speaking on Fox FM’s Focal Sports on Wednesday and wants people to stop associating the club with bad omen.
“It is not bad luck. I don’t think we are bad luck club. This Covid-19 in natural disaster and the Anas expose was man-made force majeur. Its not a bad omen. Certain things just happen.” Akoto told Fox FM in Kumasi.
“As you all know we are a team that maintain our players for long periods. Our materials are there and we are waiting for the next competition to go again” the Communication Director of Medeama added.
