Kumasi Asante Kotoko have announced that four players and four officials of the club have tested positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in Ghana from Sudan.
This was revealed in a statement signed by the club’s acting Communications Manager, David Obeng Nyarko.
“Four players and four officials of Asante Kotoko tested positive for COVID-19 upon our arrival at Kotoka International Airport yesterday. They are currently in isolation and are being treated by the Covid response team and supported by the Asante Kotoko medical team,” the statement read.
Kotoko travelled to Sudan to face Al Hilal in a second leg game of the CAF Champions League preliminary stage.
However, they were eliminated from the competition without kicking a ball, and Al Hilal were declared winners of the tie after Kotoko failed to produce the required number of players. This is due to the fact that some Asante Kotoko players were reported to have tested positive for COVID-19 but the club questioned the validity of the results.
Kotoko will now compete in the CAF Confederation Cup, and they will first face Algerian side ES Setif.
