The Ghana FA ordered the temporary closure of the Baba Yara Stadium to the Kumapem lads following an assault on Referee ER Biney after a First Capital Plus Bank Premier League match day 22-fixture against Heart of Lions in Kumasi.
“As the captain and leader for the team it was very sad and disheartening to hear the closure of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium against our home games because it can affect our performance when we start playing away from home, because we will miss the great euphoria and the massive support of our fans in Kumasi,” the ex Feyernoord academy product told CampioneSport.com.
With 6 matches more to end the season, Asante Kotoko are lying top of the log sheet with 50 points, 10 points ahead of 2nd placed Heart of Lions.
