Yussif Chibsah's video was needless- Boakye Ansah

Published on: 25 March 2020

Communications Director of Asante Kotoko, Kennedy Boakye Ansah has described former Kotoko skipper Yussif Chibsah's video amid the legal battle over his client Kwame Bonsu as 'needless'.

Chibsah, who made the deal happen for Kwame Bonsu to transfer to Esperance Sportive de Tunis has denied doing anything wrong when Tunisian club refused to pay the transfer fee of $150k to Asante Kotoko.

Boakye Ansah said in response: "After the transfer of Kwame Bonsu, we told Chibsah based on our experience with the North Africa teams that If we don’t receive our money we will hold him accountable for that so he had to sign an undertaken before we release the ITC which he did at the Kotoko Secretariat.”

“So, I’m extremely surprised seeing a viral video of him and I ask myself the essence of that video and his motivation behind it because we can solve it amicably. For me the video he did was needless and probably he was trying to get public sympathy,” Kennedy Boakye Ansah told Ghanaweb.

Kotoko was asked to pay a 180,000 dollar fine to Esperance but failed to do so and the matter will go to the FIFA Disciplinary committee in early April.
