Asante Kotoko have decided to withdraw their players from the local select XI side to play Black Stars in Friday’s farewell match at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Porcupine Warriors have Kwabena Adusei, Abeiku Ainooson, Jordan Opoku and Seidu Bancey selected for the match.

The club have explained they want to rest their players for Sunday’s outstanding Ghana FA Cup semi-final clash against King Faisal in Kumasi.

A statement on the club’s official Twitter account said: “Due to our pending FA Cup semifinals game this Sunday, Asante Kotoko will withdraw its players from Friday’s farewell game.”

Kotoko won the Ghana Premier League title with two matches to spare on Wednesday after defeating New Edubiase United 2-1.

Ghana’s World Cup squad has been preparing in Accra since Tuesday in a non-residential camping exercise.

U don’t just type anything here @ all,,,, Sometimes we should utilize our cerebrums, cerebellums and medulla to the fullest to compehend issues carefully before hastily typing anything at this forum.
    What is the benefitof releasing your’akokc bede3” to play non-cup matches whilst u have a tough FA cup semi-finals with no mean a club like King Faisal? It will be extemely puerile to release those quartetes to serve that purpose in a non-cup match….. We should better reason and apply our ‘komlakyekye” in analysing statements!!!!!!!
