Bernard 'humble lion' Dong-Bortey wants Ghanaian fans to forgive him for controversial character

Panthers FC winger Bernard Dong Bortey is pleading for clemency from the many Ghanaians he claims to have offended during his career in Ghana.

The 31-year-old is regarded as one of the brightest talent to have emerged from the West African country, who never really lived up to expectations.

The ex-Hearts of Oak talisman had a lot of brush with Ghanaian teams and officials during his time at defunct Ghapoha, Hearts of Oak, Aduana Stars and New Edubiase.

The controversial figure was frozen out of the National team due to many off-the-field incidents.

However Bortey, who currently plays for Equatorial Guinea side Panthers FC, wants to be forgiven by those he offended.

“I would like to ask all Ghanaian to forgive me. If I offended anybody, I’m pleading for forgiveness,” Bortey said

“I know I did a lot of bad things in the past but I’m more matured now. I will just plead with anyone who felt offended by my past actions to forgive me.

“To err is human; to forgive, divine. I am now concentrating on my career here in Equatorial Guinea.”

Bortey has blamed his immediate family for his erratic football career which has seen him play for Al Wasl FC, Bnei Sakhnin F.C and Sông Lam Ngh? An .
