The midfielder has revealed that he has forgiven his team-mate despite their fight at training grounds on Saturday
Aduana Stars midfielder Elvis Opoku says he stopped his father from lodging a formal complaint at the Police Station after the misunderstanding at training grounds which later ended up in a fight.
The former Bibiani Gold Stars poster boy was engaged in the unfortunate incident following a rush tackle by defender Stephen Anokye Badu on Zakaria Mumuni which Sassraku stood behind the defender bringing confusion among the team-mates.
“My family was furious after hearing about the incident. Especially my dad. He wanted to take up the matter with the police but I said no,” Opoku said, as quoted by Footballmadeinghana.
“It happened and it’s in the past. No amount of talk will put my lost teeth back. We’ve to move on as a team to ensure that we qualify to the money zone of the CAF Champions League.
“I don’t know what came over him. The issue was not even between the two of us. It was between Zakaria Mumuni and Stephen Anokye Badu. I went in to calm nerves. This is how I ended up but I’ve forgiven him,” he added.
Opoku insists he still sees Sassraku as a friend and brother and has shifted his attention to the second leg of the Caf Champions League last qualifying round against E.S Setif in Algeria.
“He is still my best friend. As friends, these things normally happen. That’s what tests the strength of your friendship,” he said.
” I don’t want him to be down because we need him on Sunday against the Algerians as we strive to qualify to the next stage of the CAF Champions League.”
AshesGyamera understands that Aduana management will likely drop the two players from the squad that will travel to Algeria if the club’s owner Nana Agyeman Badu gives his approval.
