Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have rubbished reports that they have terminated the contracts of several first-team players.
Media reports in Ghana claim that the Porcupine Warriors, who were recently eliminated in the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup, had axed captain Amos Frimpong, Jordan Opoku, Daniel Nii Adjei, Obed Owusu, Muntari Tagoe, Dany Zabo Teguy, Naby Keita and Frederick Boateng.
However, the Communications Director of the club, Sarfo Duku, has denied those reports.
“Some of them speak and write about us wanting to sack the coach and the captain when in fact we, as management, we have not even discussed that,'' he told Kotoko Express.
“Speculations are allowed in the media but it should be done responsibly. It hurts that some media houses and journalists are not being responsible for that.
“Those stories were created out of the figment of one's imaginations and thrown out there for people to consume. They do this and forget they have the responsibility to inform [the public] of nothing else but the truth.
“At times, we react to some of them but there are some that you just ignore. But the truth is that the fake news worries the fans because some of them assume that they are accurate.
“That is why we always advise that our supporters [rely on our news outlets for authentic stories on the club.
“Some media houses are doing well, but our supporters should not believe everything they hear or read in the media.”
