Kotoko players unanimously kicked against the return of midfielder Yahaya Mohammed, the clubâ€™s interim spokesman Ali Maradona has revealed.
Mohammed was released last week to bring the curtain down on a long tussle between the two parties.
The former Amidaus Professionals loanee was suspended by the club after he signed pre-contract agreement with Libyan side Al Ittihad without the clubâ€™s consent.
The Porcupine Warriors feel bitter after letting him go without getting a dime from his transfer.
The CHAN star had consistently spoken about his desire to return to the club without success but the clubâ€™s acting spokesman Ali Maradona has revealed the players ganged up against him.
â€œThe players didnâ€™t want him (Yahaya Mohammed) to come back. They wrote a letter to the board warning them about the consequences,â€ he told Peace Power Sports
â€œThey (players) threatened not to play if he was brought back to the team.
â€œHe disrespected everybody at the club including his colleagues and thatâ€™s why the board decided to let him go.â€
Mohammed has been farmed out on a one-year loan to Egyptian side Al Ittihad.
