Al Hilal Vice President Al Tahir Younis has said Kumasi Asante Kotoko are blaming their inability not to play in the return leg of the CAF Champions League on them.
Kotoko’s game against Al Hilal in the CAF Champions League was called off after they were unable to raise the required number of players for the game due to Covid-19 related issues.
The Porcupine Warriors apportioned part of the blame on Hilal.
The Sudanese side have denied the claims saying they have no idea on how the Covid-19 test was carried out by Kotoko.
“We don’t even know where they carried out the tests, it was not done by Al Hilal and the match commissioner knows this, the lab where they did the test was selected by Kotoko” Al Tahir Younis told the BBC.
He added “Kotoko arrived late and only did the test once, test results were produced only one hour before the match, they couldn’t re do the test due to time, they are throwing their failures at us.
“Al Hilal is not only a football club, it is an educational institution built on values and we can never play this dirty game, we decided games on the field and we beat Asante Kotoko in Ghana.. all these allegations are false”.
