Timothy Obuobisa has been appointed to handle Sunday’s Super Clash between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, according to reports. His assistants will be Badiu Adams and Paul Atimanka.
The nation’s two most glamorous sides will lock horns in week 10 of the Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors will go into the game on the back their victory against Wa All Stars last weekend while their bitterest rivals Hearts of Oak will be heading into the clash with a three-match winless streak.
Kotoko throw first jab
Former Public Relations Officer of Asante Kotoko, Listowel Yesu Bukarson has jabbed Hearts ahead of Sunday’s Super Clash encounter, insisting that they will not be a match.
“Hearts of Oak will not be a match for Kotoko on Sunday,” Bukarson stated on Happy FM.
When quizzed if he has watched any Hearts’ game in the ongoing Ghana league before coming out boldly with such prediction, he answered, “I have not watched and don’t wish to watch any Hearts match because they don’t play beautiful football.”
Hearts K’si fans assure team of safety
Chairman of the Ashanti Region Chapters Committee of Hearts of Oak, Ishaq Omar Tetteh has assured the team of safety ahead of Sunday’s Super Clash.
In the wake of the Phobians 1-1 stalemate with Bechem United last weekend, some irate fans of the club attacked the team, injuring the Administrative manager, Hackman Aidoo and Public Relations Officer, Kwame Opare Addo in the process.
The supporters who are clearly not happy with the club’s performance in the ongoing campaign, ambushed the team’s bus after the game, threatening to beat the players and officials on board the bus.
The security personnel at the Baba Yara Stadium intervened on time to restore calm and prevent what could have been a bloody situation.
Ishaq Omar Tetteh told Oyerepa FM: “We have started talking to our supporters on their behaviour and we believe the security agencies will also help us curb such menace.
“I was surprised at the rate our supporters were angry even though I know and acknowledge their worries and concerns. We have spoken to them and calm has been restored, we are all rallying behind the team to beat Kotoko come Sunday, mark my words.”
