Asante Kotoko star Songne Yacouba set for contract renewal after issuing an apology

Published on: 16 August 2019

Burkina Faso forward Songne Yacouba has reportedly expressed desire to extend his contract with Asante Kotoko despite the fallout with the club.

According to reports, the 27-year-old handed in a transfer request after receiving offers from Orlando Pirates and Al Hilal of Sudan, a move which never materialised.

As a result, Yacouba has failed to report to training for the past weeks.

According to a report by Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, management of Kotoko issued out a warning to the player for showing gross misconduct and asked for an explanation.

However, he apologised for his actions and has made himself available for a contract extension.

He could be available for the Porcupine Warriors as they lock horns with Kano Pillars in the return leg of the CAF Champions League.
