Video: Kotoko supporters clash with military & prevent players from leaving stadium after Champions League defeat


The supporters of the Ghanaian champions were so furious after the painful defeat to Racing Club Kadiogo

Asante Kotoko supporters were very furious following the 3-1 defeat on penalties to Burkina Faso champions Racing Club Kadiogo in the second leg of Caf Champions League prelims at Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.

After picking up a 1-0 victory in the first leg last week in Benin, Kotoko were optimistic of sealing qualification ahead of the return encounter.

However, Kambou’s goal for Kadiogo in the first half extended the game to penalty shootouts and the unexpected happened.

Despite Kotoko scoring their first penalty kick, the next three players failed to convert their kicks which led to Kadiogo winning 3-1 and progressing to the next stage.

After the game, Kotoko’s supporters wanted to display to the players and officials their disappointment and blocked the road to prevent the team’s bus to leave the stadium.

Despite the intervention of the military, it took a little longer before the players and officials could leave the stadium safely.

Kotoko’s next game will be another home fixture against bitterest rivals Hearts of Oak in matchday three of Ghana Premier League.
