The consensus by clubs and the Normalisation Committee at a consultative meeting on Friday in Accra has been met with mixed reactions.

Asante Kotoko have been angling for an opportunity to play in Africa inter-club competition next year, pushing for a slot after the snub.

Ashantigold, who placed second after the abrupt end of the 2017/18 season, are also monitoring the situation amid reports they could also slap in a petition.
