Hearts, Kotoko UK clash in doubt

Credible reports gathered from highly placed sources within the Ghana FA and Sports Ministry indicate that the much anticipated Independence Anniversary clash between Kotoko and Hearts of Oak in London, UK, is in doubt following an attempt by the Ministry of Youth and Sports to push the match to a later date.

It has been gathered that, despite all arrangements for the London game perfectly in order awaiting visas, the ministry rather wants the two clubs to feature in an Independence Day match at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi to coincide with the country’s 64th anniversary celebrations.

The government of Ghana decision to rotate the annual independence celebrations has led to the Ashanti Regional capital being earmarked for this year’s celebration.

The Sports Ministry, therefore wants the two fierce rivals to clash in Kumasi instead, to climax the occasion.

This move could scuttle the plans to fly the two teams to the United Kingdom, in what could have been the first Super Clash outside the country.

Despite the Ghana Football Association and the two clubs overwhelming endorsement for the March 7 London clash at the Barnet Stadium, the latest development will leave a lot of fans disappointed.

The match, dubbed, the Clash in London, is being organised by Proball International Limited, a football agency in United Kingdom, in collaboration with Nana Yaw Amponsah and Justin Addo, two world acclaimed football managers. –Kickgh.com
