Ex-Ghanaian footballer and Accra Hearts of Oak player Emmanuel “Senegal” Armah has disclosed in an interview with Saddick Adams (Sports Obama) on the Atinka Total Sports show that Kumasi Asante Kotoko show him more respect and love despite the fact that he played for Accra Hearts of Oak.
Most Ex-Ghanaian footballers who have played for both Hearts and Kotoko have all showered praises on Kotoko for the kind of love and respect shown to them by the supporters and leaders of the club before and after playing for the porcupine warriors. This is not a surprise, as the fabulous boys always say in our local language “Kotoko mu ye dew” meaning “Kotoko is sweat and enjoyable”.
This is not an exception as “Armah Senegal” said during the interview that “I haven’t played for Kotoko before but when their leaders meet me, they show me maximum respect. If I go to kumasi, Kotoko supporters sees me as their God; they are always happy seeing me. We have disgraced Kotoko on the field of play on serval occasions but they still love me. What about the club I played for.?”
“I died for Hearts of Oak, God should have mercy on the club because the leaders don’t respect us. We suffered for the club. When I say I’m a Goldfields player, they get angry with me, but Goldfields remembers me and Hearts does not,” he said.
“They are celebrating the 107th anniversary. If they really respect or love us, they should have invited their former players,” he added.
Armah Senegal was not happy that he has been tagged as an indisciplined player but was always praised anytime he scored a last minute goal against Kotoko.
He stated that “they always say that Armah Senegal is indisciplined but when I score Kotoko, they are happy. Every player who knows how to play also causes trouble.
