Head coach of Asante Kotoko, Mariano Barreto has furiously highlighted on the reasons behind their elimination from the FA Cup directing his blames to some section of the club supporters.


The defending champions had their run shuttered by Berekum Chelsea who defeated them 4-5 via penalty shootouts to sail through to the semi final of the league cup.

According to the Portuguese gaffer, some section of the Kotoko supporters came to rain insults and abusive words on the players with few hours to start the game which really affected them mentally with the boys not willing to even play the game at some certain point. He said in a post match interview;
“People who are supposed to be Kotoko supporters came to where we were having our lunch to insult our players, so most of the players played today because we told them to play.”
“I have told the management to investigate and punish those supporters who did that."
The Porcupine Warriors will have no feel in any of the CAF cluh competitions next season having completed a trophyless campaign in the 2020/21 season.
