Kotoko slap indefinite ban on striker Yahaya Mohammed

Asante Kotoko have slapped in indefinite suspension of striker Yahaya Mohammed for going AWOL in February, Metro FM has reported.

The 25-year-old travelled to Libya where he is accused of signing for Ittihad Tripoli without permission from the Ghanaian giants.

In a letter dated April 24th 2014, Kotoko’s management have confirmed the indefinite suspension slapped on their forward as part of the recommendations made by the three-man committee of inquiry.

The club have also decided to halve the monthly salary of the home-based Black Stars’ hitman from March up to the time his suspension ends.

“Following the findings of the three-member committee set up to investigate your disappearance, Management in consultation with the technical team has suspended you indefinitely,” aspects of the letter read.

Yahaya Mohammed travelled to Libya to allegedly sign a pre-contract agreement with Ittihad Tripoli on the heels of an impressive campaign with Ghana at the CHAN tournament.

The ex OGC Nice player’s current deal with the reigning Ghana Premier League champions ends at the end of the current campaign in May.

He is therefore free to join any club of his choice at the end of this period as free agent.

    This is long overdue. This arrogant idiot thinks he is the best money can buy. But he is just an empty barrel. Kotoko should let him go freely and focus in finding players who have the club at heart, and who are much better than him.

    Bunch of educated illiterates all over the decided to suspend a player than pay to him half of his monthly salaries to chop free.moreover,no matter what happens this guy is leaving for Libya as free agent and already pocketing his signing on does he care in anyway at all? So who is doing the other harm here between kotoko and Mohamed ? Awurade!! And the PR machine had the gust to come out to publish this piece of garbage for public consumption ,so the public can read the management of kotoko are not only dumbs but stupid ?This rubbish doesn't garner public sympathy in technically this is a failure for kotoko club. Better still if kotoko is wanting to achieve fame and money from this piece of drama ,maybe they should pay liwin and Kwaku Manu to act of film with the title " yahaya Mohammed swerves kotoko part 1,2,3 up to 10". With the successful kumawood film industry based in Kumasi ,it should be easy for kotoko to do so..# concert folks
