Kotoko believes that corona virus test results were falsified

After Al Hilal won the match against Asante Kotoko due to Caf rules, Kotoko has started protests about the results.

After the

Asante Kotoko

players' flight reached the ground in Acra to have the match against

Al Hilal

, the first round of the fixtures was canceled due to four squad members' positive corona virus test.

The team was unable to present 15 players for the match and because of this, the match was canceled.

Kotoko announced:

"Four players and four officials of Asante Kotoko tested positive for Covid-19 upon our arrival at Kotoko International Airport yesterday.

"They are currently in isolation and are being treated by the Covid response team and supported by the Asante Kotoko medical team.

"It is however important to note that five players including Kwame Opoku and one official who was alleged to have tested positive from the first test in Sudan have all tested negative from the subsequent two tests in the Military Hospital in Sudan and at the Kotoko International Airport.

"The rest of the team with the addition of Danlad Ibrahim and fit-again Emmanuel Keyekeh, Mudasiru Salifu and Patrick Asmah are currently training at the Teshie Military Park in Accra as we prepare for our GPL encounter with Liberty Professionals on Monday, 11th January 2021."

As Caf rules state, now Al Hilal is declared the winner of the game with a 2-0 win and as they had won Kotoko at the first leg fixture with a 1-0 result, Al Hilal got a 3-0 win.

The Ghanaians are mad and questioning this result as they believe the test results were falsified by Hilal.

They have been reportedly going to CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) to protest.
