Full back for Kumasi Asante Kotoko Augustine Sefah has debunked claims that players of the club were involved in theft at a hotel in Kenya.
Players of Kotoko have been accused by management of City Lodge Hotel in Nairobi of stealing face towels when they lodged in the hotel during their CAF Confederations Cup match against Kariobangi Sharks on Saturday 15th at MISC Kasarani.
However, Augustine has explained they used the face towels in the hotel but no player took any of it away.
“What we took were face towels but we didn’t bring them to Ghana. What happened was that some of the players took them (face towels) to the dressing room at the stadium where the match was played so that they use it after showering following the end of the game. Some of the players even left the towels in the dressing room. Some too left them in the bus that transported us to the stadium” Sefah narrated.
“I myself saw the face towel that Frederick Boateng left in the dressing room after using it. If there is anything we wanted to bing to Ghana it would have been the big bath towels. They are very white and large. That is what we would have taken to Ghana if we wanted but we did not.” the full- back further stated.
“Felix (Annan) also took one of the bath towels to the stadium and that was what he used during the game against the Kenyans but we went back to the hotel with it.” Sefah added.
The Assistant Manager of City Lodge hotel, Allan Kimani spoke with Vision 1 FM and offered clarity on the matter.
He said “It is true that certain items are missing from the hotel rooms but we cannot attribute that to Asante Kotoko as we have had many visitors within the same week. We cannot say that. ” Allan Kimani said.
