The 2nd leg of "The Golden Clash" between Kotoko and Ashantigold has been postponed upon the request of Kotoko after their head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin resigned.


In a Press release, the Organizers of the game explained that Kotoko asked for the postponement of the game after their head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin quit his job today.

It is still unclear why the club will call off the game but this could be from a psychological point of view.

The game was scheduled for September for September 16, 2018, at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium will now be honoured on September 23, 2018, at the same venue.
