Asante Kotoko head coach, Mariano Baretto has decried the poor treatment meted out to them at Sogakope in their week 25 clash against Liberty Professionals on Sunday.
According to the Portuguese trainer, they were expected to train on the astroturf a day before the game but were denied access.
The action by Liberty Professionals who have adopted the venue for home games did not go down well with the former Ghana Black Stars coach who described it as a “disrespect to fair play.”
“We were not allowed to train here, it was something to make me ashamed because the fair play is something we have to observe.
“Fair play and respect and someone didn’t respect us, they allowed us to come here and when the team was here they didn’t give permission to train.
“This is a country of football and there are somethings we can, we have to preserve, it’s he respect and fair play.
“When the teams who come to play with KOTOKO, we receive them very well.
“No pressure, always when we come to play, problems, Eleven Wonders it happened, they always make problems in the gates.
“I don’t know what the match commissioners are looking at, they have to protect these things because Ghana is a country of football for excellence and we have to try to make the game good.
“The game is not a war, the game you can win, you can lose, if you lose you have to congratulate the other but it’s not to create fight before the match.” Baretto said.
Kotoko held Liberty to a 1-1 draw to still maintain the top spot with 45 points after week 25.
