Sekondi Hasaacas striker Eric Bekoe says he was a victim of verbal abuse at the hands of Asante Kotoko coach David Duncan in Friday’s Ghana Premier League defeat.
Kwame Boateng scored the solitary strike of the game on 78 minutes as the Porcupine Warriors recorded their first win of the season at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium after five rounds of matches.
And Bekoe, who was once on the books of Kotoko, leading the side to the 2007-08 topflight title and claiming the league’s top scorer award, is unhappy with the conduct of referee Maxwell Hanson and the Porcupine Warriors manager.
“We played against the referee and not the team,” Bekoe told SuperSport TV.
“As a respected coach that we all know, he [Duncan] called me to the touchline and insulted me. It didn’t look professional.
“It was uncalled for. I do not know why he did that. He just called me and started dissing me.
“If [his insults were through a fault of mine], his staff members would not have called me to apologise.”
Kotoko have now temporarily moved out of the bottom three to 10th position on the league log ahead of the remaining matchday five games, while Hasaacas sit 13th.
Bekoe, on his part, boasts of three goals this season.
