    We've now seen the kind of people running our football.when Ayisoba kingston slapped someone at obuasi what did they do to him? When james abban insulted the refree after his red against dwarfs what happened? I was at the stadium when soulama n co humbly put their hands at their back n protested to the refree after the match and if this calls for a fine,then we will kill a refree for a ban.thank u

    We are all aware that Kotoko is going to face a lot so its not wonderful. All the same the fans of Kotoko should exercise patience on some actions.
