Chief Executive Officer, George Amoakoh says Management is taking steps to ensure maximum security when the Porcupines face FC San-Pedro in Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday.
Kotoko beat the Ivorian side 1-0 in the CAF Confederation Cup playoff round first-leg in Kumasi on Monday. The game at the Baba Yara Stadium was marred by an unjust attack on South African referee, Eugene Indluli by the away team.
The Ivorians have sent an erroneous impression back home that, they were rather attacked and put the return leg in Abidjan in a security risk.
Responding to how secured the Porcupines and the travelling fans will be in the neighbouring West African country amid fears of intimidation, George Amoakoh reveals that, Management will ensure that some security measures are taken for the duel.
“They came here with a strategy intending to provoke us for us to retaliate in a way that, they will have a cause to complain. We neither maltreated them nor did anything that could be described as such.”
“They rather misbehaved. However, we are taking steps to ensure that there will be adequate security when we play in Abidjan.”
