Deputy Communications Director for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Solomon Ofosu Ware, believes the FA Cup committee wants to frustrate his side following the decision to allow their game against Real 24 Hours to go ahead at the Tumu Park.
Kotoko’s attempt to have the venue changed proved futile as the FA Cup committee rejected Kotoko’s plea for a change of venue.
For Ofosu Ware, these are attempts are made to frustrate the Porcupine.
“It seems the FA cup committee want to frustrates Kotoko because if you look at our schedule, we have to drive from Kumasi to Tumu and come back, prepare and travel to Dawu for our match against Dreams FC,” he told Asempa Sports.
“When the draw was made, we were made aware that the match will be played at Wa so why are they now pushing it to Tumu because in our match against AK Shion, their pitch did not meet the requirement of the licensing board so the match was moved from their home grounds to Sunyani.”
“If you look at the pitch where the match will be played, it is really horrible but as for us we don’t want to have any problem with the FA because we all want the betterment of our league but our problem is that, Kotoko is a big club and we should be treated with respect.”
“We will meet today at our office and take our final decision on the match before Saturday.”
Kotoko beat Shion on penalties to reach the round of 32 stage.
