Meet the Kotoko Supporters chief who advised the club to face Aduana Stars with ten men in first half

The individual behind the Porcupine Warriors decision to face Aduana Stars with ten men in the first half has been revealed.

It was a bizarre scene at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park as Asante Kotoko and Aduana Stars played the first half of their match-day 11 clash with only ten men instead of eleven.
 
Chairman of the Asante Kotoko Circles for Dormaa, Mr. Richard Asante popularly know as Hon. Dinpa has stated that he advised the Porcupine Warriors to face Aduana Stars with ten men in the first department of their clash.
 
Reports from the teams' technical bench indicated that Aduana Stars defender Farouk Adams and Kotoko’s Martin Antwi sustained knocks which required treatment.
 
But the treatment delayed the kick-off so the centre referee Alphonso Atiapah decided to whistle for the game to start with ten men from each side, since the laws of the game state that a football match can be played with a minimum of seven men.
 
The two players namely Farouk Adams and Martin Antwi dragged their feet in returning to the turf until after the first half.
 
According to Mr. Asante, the directives for such move to start the match with ten men came from their spiritual father ahead of the crunchy fixture.
 
"The advice came based on what we heard and saw, but we thank God for what happened because it could have resulted in something else if we (Kotoko) won the game." Mr. Asante told Kumasi based radio station OTEC FM
 
"I told them that Yahaya Mohammed always comes on the pitch with their (Aduana Stars) black magic 'juju' so they should make sure and see to it that he is no the pitch before our last player also enters." He revealed 
 
"But, I had no idea on why they delayed when coming to Dormaa, I was even worried and wondering why the route from Berekum to Dormaa was changed by the [Management]"
 
Asante Kotoko currently lies on fourth position with 18 points after matchweek 11.
