Ex Asante Kotoko midfielder Richard Mpong has revealed his disappointment in Kotoko fans for treating him unfairly.
Mpong’s three fruitful years he spent with the Porcupine Warriors was marred by a series of unpleasant encounters with the fans which triggered his exit from the club.
The Elmina sharks midfielder believes that he was wrongfully accused by some section of the fans who fabricated a story to hasten his exit.
Neverthelss the playmaker has revealed that he still has great love for the club.
“I loved Kotoko. I had passion for the club. My entire family is a Kotoko family so I really wanted to play for them even while I was playing for Medeama,” Mpong revealed in an interview
“… they gave me a bad name, tarnished my image before I left the club and never gave me the opportunity to explain myself. I joined the club with blistering happiness but left with pain and sorrow,” he narrated
“I was branded the leader of a clique that wanted David Duncan to fail to the extent that a notorious fan of the club who was noted for his close relationship with leadership, Seidu MBA was on radio claiming I took losing bonus from Dr. KK Sarpong to share for the players who were hired during Didi Dramani’s era when Kotoko lost 2-1 to MC El Eulma in the CAF Champions League round of 16.
“I was shocked to the marrow when Opoku Nti spoke to all the players who were alleged to be members of that clique but never spoke to me.
“I felt disrespected and disappointed that the club I helped to win two league titles and two FA Cup trophies could treat me like that,” he added
