Kotoko Could Petition CAS Over Al Hilal Case – David Obeng Nyarko

    Asante Kotoko could petition the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) if the Confederation of African Football (CAF) does not hear their case against All Hilal.

    This is according to the Acting Communications Manager of Kotoko, David Obeng Nyarko.

    The Porcupine Warriors was pitted against ES Setif in the CAF Confederation Cup which has been scheduled for February 14.

    However that was as a result of Kotoko’s inability to raise a team as per the CAF regulations after seven of its players recorded positive for the coronavirus which led to the postponement of the game.

    The postponement was later cancelled as CAF announced that Kotoko will play in the Confederation Cup against ES Setif.

    After the announcement, reports indicate Kotoko did petition CAF to rescind its decision in order for a rematch.

    Speaking to Kumasi based radio outlet, Oyerepa FM, the Acting Communications Manager, David Obeng Nyarko says the club is hoping to hear a favorable decision from the Competitions Department of CAF concerning their petition.

    He added that, the world sports adjudicatory body,CAS will not be far fetched if they don’t hear from CAF.

    “It’s important to exhaust all the legal processes at CAF. Our Petition has been referred to Competitions dept of CAF and we hope to hear favorably from them,”

    Going to CAS is one of the options we have. We will not let this go, will fight to the later.”

    Kotoko remains Ghana’s sole representative in the CAF inter club competition.
