Asante Kotoko recall Fatawu Safiu ahead of CAF Champions League campaign


Asante Kotoko have recalled striker Fatawu Safiu ahead of their CAF Champions League campaign.

Safiu is currently on trials at Swedish side Helsingborg, however, he has been asked to return by the Porcupine Warriors after the European club proposed a $15,000 offer for the attacker.

An amount Public Relations Officer of Asante Kotoko insists is below the player’s quality and can only allow the striker to leave when the right offer comes.

“We have asked the player to come back to Ghana because looking at Fatawu’s quality, his pedigree, value, you can’t pay $15000 for him,” Kennedy Boakye Ansah told Oyerepa FM.

“Kotoko deserves better, we don’t think the player deserves that so we have asked the player to come back to Ghana.”

The striker was one of the standout performers for the Reds as they reached the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.

He also guided the team to win the Normalisation Committee Special Competition Tier I.
