Kotoko is a Religion and not just a football club-Eric Bekoe

Former Asante Kotoko ace Eric Bekoe has added his voice to the notion that the Kumasi based club is a religion where players are expected to worship.

“I always advise people coming to Kotoko that we don't play Kotoko but we worship Kotoko”, Bekoe said in an interview with Kumasi based Ashh FM.

The issue of Kotoko being a religion first came into the public domain when the life patron of Kotoko Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, made the pronouncement some time ago.

Some players and followers of the club have since then been referring to the club as a religion. The latest to add to it is former goal poacher Eric Kwabena Bekoe.
