Eric Bekoe’s mother Janet Offei has launched a scathing attack on Kotoko for treating her son ‘unfairly’.
The 25-year-old striker turned his attention to Berekum Chelsea after his hugely publicized move to Kotoko collapsed at the eleventh hour.
The former Liberty Professionals and Heart of Lions man was keen to re-join the Porcupine Warriors after he cancelled his contract with Egyptian outfit Petrojet.
But the supposed move shockingly collapsed with just days for the transfer-window to shut after Kotoko claimed they were unable to meet his asking price.
But Bekoe’s mother has slammed officials of the Ghanaian League Champions for the manner that her son was treated.
“What they (Kotoko) did to him was shameful and must be condemned in no uncertain terms,” Offei told Accra-based Asempa FM
“He left all the good money that he was getting from Petrojet to come to Kotoko because of his unflinching love for the club.
“But some crooked persons with their own selfish agenda scattered the deal.
“He nearly had an accident when he heard of the news. I am very disappointed with the way the people in the helm of affairs treated him.
“Nobody can question his love for Kotoko but some people wanted him to do certain things he didn’t like. It’s a shame that it ended the way it did.
“If Berekum Chelsea had not come, where else did they expect him to go? I am grateful to God that he has found a new home.”
Bekoe is yet to hit the ground running after he signed for the 2010 Ghanaian League Champions on a two-year deal.
