Ex-Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe claims he â€˜faintedâ€™ after the club â€˜betrayedâ€™ him over his return to the Ghanaian giants.
The 27-year-old saw his return to the Kumasi-based side collapsed at the eleventh hour despite Â passing a medical.
The former Heart of Lions striker has revealed he â€˜collapsedâ€™ after hearing of Kotokoâ€™s U-turn.
â€œYou know it was a shock, I mean for someone to let go of 450 thousand dollars just to think of the love for the team and I will get here and without a proper check on me byÂ any doctor and then you tell me I have a knee injury which I havenâ€™t even experienced in my entire career before,â€ he revealed on Radio XYZ
â€œI was dropped on the way with the team to Cape Coast at Anyinam, that was where I was droppedÂ and given the information that orders from above says I have to drop out of the team until further notice.
â€œI have been painted badly to the fans of the Club and till now, someone who doesnâ€™t know the story still believes that I neglected Kotoko, but they rather did, the past management they rather abandoned me after convincing me to terminate myÂ contract with Petrojet.
He Added: Â â€œI asked former member, the late Jerry Asare may his soul rest in peace, that sir are you sure you guys wonâ€™t disappoint me if I should terminate my contract, but he assured me everything will be fine.
â€œLater he called to tell me that the people [Kotoko] are not willing to sign me on and before I realized, I was in the hospital with my mum and she told me I collapsed after hearing the news on the phone.
The ex-Petrojet attacker is still popular among Kotoko fans after he netted an incredible 42 goals in all competition for the club in 2008.
