Gnashing Of Teeth: We Would Have Won The League If … – Nana Yaw Amponsah Laments

Published

on

Nana Yaw Amponsah believes Asante Kotoko would have been Ghana Premier League champions should they have played their home matches at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Prior to the start of the 2020/21 season, the Porcupine Warriors were forced to move to the Accra Sports Stadium due to the renovation works at the stadium.

However, the club switched to the Obuasi Len Clay stadium prior to the start of the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.

Their rivals, Hearts of Oak have won the top-flight with a game to end the season.

According to the Chief Executive Officer [CEO], the change of venue affected the performance of the team.

“If we had played at the Baba Yara Stadium, we would’ve won this league with 10 points gap because, at some point, we were leading Hearts of Oak with four points but we thank God we didn’t disgrace ourselves, considering all the disadvantages,” Mr Amponsah told Happy FM.

“Some of the refereeing decisions that went against Kotoko this season, I believe if it was at the Baba Yara Stadium, the fear of God will be in some people.

“We all know that home advantage plays a key role in our football,” he added.

Kotoko, meanwhile, will wrap up their season with a home game against Elmina Sharks at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium on Sunday.

According to the owner and bankroller of the club, league giants, Kotoko, worked against his side in the relegation fight.

He claims the Porcupine Warriors should be ashamed of themselves for failing to achieve their target of seeing Faisal relegated from the top-flight.

“They (Asante Kotoko) should be ashamed of themselves,” he fumed on Asempa FM on the Ultimate Sports Show.

“They are greedy and wanted King Faisal to be relegated.

“They did everything possible to ensure we are relegated but they forgot that they are not God.

“They wanted Kwame Peprah and I. Dreams FC, Ebusua Dwarfs, and Hearts of Oak were all interested in the player but it was only Dreams FC who promised us good money but we decided to keep the player,” he added.
