Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has tipped Kumasi Asante Kotoko to win Sunday’s derby with eternal rivals Accra Hearts of Oak slated to take place at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The former President, having served as Chairman of the Porcupine Warriors in the past admitted his Kotoko bias in an interview with Graphic Online Tuesday, explaining that games involving Ghana’s biggest clubs were difficult to predict.
“Between Kotoko and Hearts over the years, anytime the two clash Its a clash of titans, spiritual matches, so it tends to be very difficult to predict who is going to win,” President Kufuor said on the sidelines of a courtesy call by the family of the late Sam Arday.
He continued, “But I will tell you on my side I am biased, Kotoko runs in my blood and so, Sunday I expect Kotoko will beat Hearts that’s all”.
Former President Kufuor also weighed-in on the debate about the massive exodus of talents that has plagued the Ghana Premier League over the past decade.
According to him, football is now a product of the global markets so it will be very difficult to stop players from leaving the league for better wages and conditions.
