Deputy Health Minister Hilariously Reveals How He Ditched Kotoko For Hearts of Oak After A Heart Break
Deputy Health Minister Dr Bernard Okoe-Boye has disclosed that a heartbreak he suffered from Asante Kotoko in 2004 made him decamp the Reds to their rivals Hearts of Oak.
The Porcupines in 2004 clashed with their sworn-rivals Hearts of Oak in the first edition of the newly created CAF Confederation Cup. Hearts of Oak defeated Asante Kotoko 8-7 on penalties in the final after the two legs ended 2-2 to lift the trophy.
This, according to the Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku left him broken-hearted and decided to withdraw his support for the Baba Yara-based club to the Phobians.
“I was a staunch supporter of Asante Kotoko but after that painful defeat to sworn rivals Hearts of Oak in the Caf Confederations Cup finals in 2004 I decided to retire my support for the club and abscond to Accra Hearts Oak,” he told Adam Adjei on Kasapa FM’s Dwidwamu Sports Night.
