Revealed: Kotoko winger Mpong held hostage by disgraceful irate Kotoko fans

Richard Mpong was hot at the Baba Yara stadium on Wednesday

Kotoko winger Richard Mpong was held hostage by irate supporters of the club following their goalless draw against Medeama in the Ghana Premier League on Wednesday.

The angry fans were unhappy with the performance of the 21-year-old and singled him out for blame.

Mpong wasted perhaps what could have been their only goal of the match when he failed to chip home with only goalkeeper Joseph Halm to beat.

The former Medeama winger missed a similar chance to have sealed the points for the club during their 1-1 draw at Hearts of Oak.

It looks like the patience of the Porcupine faithfuls are running out after they attempted to beat him.

The visibly shaken speedster was held hostage by the fans for more than an hour in the dressing room and took the intervention of the Police to avert a melee.

Mpong joined Kotoko from Medeama at the start of the season after turning down several offers from Europe.

    In as much as I condemn in no uncertain terms, the actions of the supporters, i shudder to think of the sort of players who are donning the fabulous jersey now. This same Mpong guy played a great game and even won a cap for the nation only to fade miserably at Kotoko. To waste two glaring chances in as many days will definitely unsettle nerves. Especially when these chances can put the team in pole position to win the league...
