Abdul Fatawu rejected our request to return - Kotoko top official reveals

Management member of the Porcupine Warriors has confirmed that the 25-year-old turned down their request to rejoin his teammates after his switch to Helsingborg IF hit snag.

Asante Kotoko communication director, Kennedy Boakye Ansah has revealed that Abdul Fatawu Safiu rejected their request to return to the club after his loan move to the Swedish top-flight side broke down.
The 25-year-old's loan switch to Helsingborg IF hit snag after his club, Asante Kotoko couldn't reach agreement with the Swedish side on the transfer fee.
According to Mr. Boakye Ansah, the Kumasi-based club opted to farm the attacker to Swedish second-tier side Trelleborgs FF following his unsporting behaviour.
"It is true that he [Abdul Fatawu Safiu] didn't want to return to Ghana to play for Asante Kotoko after a successful trial with Helsingborg IF," Boakye Ansah told Oyerepa FM
"We had no choice to loan him out to Trelleborgs FF on a four month loan deal worth $35,000"
"Helsingborg IF's offer was peanut. We felt insulted by the club, so we recalled him but he wasn't ready to return"
"We held several talks with Abdul Fatawu but he wasn't interested despite telling him playing in the CAF Champions League will attract him better offers"
He joined Trelleborgs FF on a four-month loan deal with an option to make it permanent if he excels during his stay.
His loan deal will expire in November 2019.
Safiu, former Inter Allies player became an instant hitman of the Porcupine Warriors after joining them on a free transfer in 2028 where he scored two goals with three assists to help them reach the group stages of the 2028/29 CAF Confederation Cup.
During the GFA Normalization Committee Special Competition, he netted eleven goals to help Kotoko to clinch the competition.
Safiu earned a call-up to the senior national team of Ghana ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations following his splendid performance.
