Barrack Young Controllers President Sekou Konneh has lashed at allegations of bribery in their CAF Champions League win over Asante Kotoko.

The Liberian club scored late to progress in the Champions League on the away goals rule having been beaten 2-1 in the first leg against the Ghanaian champions.

Rumours fast gaining grounds in Ghana however suggests that goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama was compromised with a bribe before the Sunday’s match in Monrovia.

Officials of the Liberian club are alleged to have handed a $3000 bribe to goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye to throw the game by conceding a cheeky goal.

But BYC President Professor Konneh has debunked these unsubstantiated claims – saying Kotoko lost the game fair and square.

“I’m very disappointed to hear this news coming from Ghanaians, Konneh told Hot FM.

“Ghanaians are too intelligent to come up with these false claims.

“I didn’t expect this from Ghanaians. At what point in time will I meet the goalkeeper (Soulama) when he is stacked to his team.

“Did we meet or talk to him at the airport or their hotel or where?

“It is outrageous that we didn’t bribe a referee but rather a player. Kotoko didn’t play a good game in Liberia.

“They played better in Kumasi but were poor in Liberia. They deserved to lose.”

BYC are only making a debut appearance in the CAF Champions League following their domestic league triumph last season.

The club have now attracted the attention of the world following their progress in Africa’s flagship club competition at the expense of the renowned Ghanaian giants who have failed to successive campaigns to get into the group stage of the Champions League.

    There was no bribe. We just lost. This Kotoko team is a bunch of losers and crap. All the players should be relieved at once.
