A source at Cotonsport of Garoua has confirmed the club will write to CAF to complain about the ineligibility of Asante Kotoko Midfielder, Kwame Bonsu.
A source at the club told kick442.com that, they have gathered sufficient facts to prove that Kwame Bonsu is not eligible to play for Asante Kotoko of Ghana following his last commitment before he joined Asante Kotoko.The official said they had attempted tabling a qualification protest against the player before kick off of the return game in Kumasi on Sunday but the match officials especially the match commissioner from Gambia,Martin Gomez denied them the chance of doing so.
The 24 year old Kwame Bonsu lastly played for Swedish side,Gefle between 2015 to 2017 but ran into all sorts of problems in his time in Sweden and was even sentenced to 2 years imprisonment in his time in Sweden sexually assaulting his wife.
The issue about the same players eligibility initially surfaced after Asante Kotoko beat Cotonsport in Cameroon but Asante Kotoko’s officials debunked the rumours on multiple Ghanaian local media platforms.
Kwame Bonsu played against Cotonsport in the first game in Cameroon bearing Jersey number 8 in the match forms handed to reporters but had shirt number 3 on and in the match commissioner’s report the name had jersey number 5. On Sunday in Kumasi Ghana he used the Jersey number 3 creating more questions about the player.
Goal.com had reported in July last year that the player and his Swedish club,Gefle had mutually agreed to terminate his contract making him eligible to play elsewhere.
It remains to be seen how Cotonsport will gather their evidence to back their claims against the former Heart of Lions Midfielder.
Asante Kotoko beat Cotonsport of Garoua by 5-3 on aggregate to book a place in the Monday’s draw.
