The Accra representative of Asante Kotoko, Edmund Ackah has insisted that they don’t need the aid match officials to beat Kariobangi Sharks FC on Saturday.
The Porcupine Warriors will host Kenyan side for the second leg of the CAF Confederations Cup at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Saturday after a goalless draw in Nairobi last week.
But according to him, a section of the of the local media are propagating falsehood that Kotoko welcomed the officiating officials and looked like doing everything to win sympathy and favour from the referees, but Ackah has firmly debunked such perceptions.
“We don’t need to go to the referee before we can beat Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday,” he told Kumasi based FOX FM.
“I have heard some people implying that we approached the referees to possible influence them, but let me state it clear, that we have no intentions of going to any referee, we don’t need to go to the referee to beat the Sharks team, if we have anything we will do it on the pitch,” he insisted.
The Ugandan officiating officials arrived in Ghana on Wednesday, while the Match Commissioner arrived on Thursday morning and are currently in Kumasi ahead of the Saturday encounter.
