Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko FC landed in Nairobi on last week Thursday for a CAF Confederations Cup against local side Kariobangi Sharks.
Hardly had they touched down at KIA than we started hearing complaints of their team being given a smaller team bus that couldn’t allow their players to stretch their legs. The team also complained about the sub-standard training venue that they had been provided for by their hosts.
Their complaints were too much to a point they forced Kariobangi to respond. The Kenyan side said that the visitors were making unrealistic demands and even challenged them to make a formal complaint with CAF.
“It is disturbing to note that our opponents have resorted to creating a false illusion of mistreatment. We would like to clarify that we have done our best as per Caf regulations and we shall continue to do so.” Read part of a statement from Sharks.
The match went on as scheduled and ended in a barren draw. But as the visitors left Nairobi, they left with some stolen face towels from the hotel they were staying.
According to a senior Ghanaian journalist Saddick Adams, City Lodge Hotel has complained about missing items that the players stole.
