Disregard reports of Yacouba's inclusion for London clash against Hearts - Nana Coker

By Vincent Ashitey

General Manager of Asante Kotoko Nana Akwasi Gyambibi popularly known as Nana Coker has poured cold water on reports of Songne Yacouba's inclusion in their squad for the trip to London to face Hearts of Oak.

According to coker, reports circulating that the Burkinabe attacker has been included for the London showdown against their bitterest rivals should be discarded.

Yacouba has been out of Asante Kotoko match-day squad in recent weeks following his decision not to renew his contract with the club.

He was handed a return to the first team of the club for their clash with Karela United on Friday. He cameoed in Kotoko 1-0 win over Karela at the Akoon Park, Tarkwa.

Speaking to Kumasi-based Light FM Coker said "....between Kotoko and Yacouba whom we all know that he is under contract with Kotoko and the contract expires next month. It is not true that Yacouba is part of the London trip."
Kotoko last month announced a 31-man delegation for their clash against Hearts of Oak.
