Ghana Premier League title-winners Asante Kotoko have presented their historic title treble to the club’s life patron Asantehene Otumfuor Osei Tutu II after the end of the Ghanaian season.
The Porcupine Warriors won their third consecutive title this season and sealed their first ever double after beating Inter Allies in the MTN FA Cup final.
Kotoko emerged champions of the Ghanaian top-flight league, two games to the end of the season and amassed 55 points, 8 better than second-placed Heart of Lions.
Kotoko’s treble winning exploits came on the back of their Super Cup title retention after they emerge both champions of the league and the FA Cup. They won the gong last season and therefore retained it.
Otumfuo Osei Tutu thanked the entire team, the technical handlers and supporters for the honour but expressed his disappointment at the club’s early exit and elimination from the CAF Champions League by minnows Barrack Young Controllers of Liberia.
“I was very disappointed with the news of the club’s exit from the Champions League and the side we lost to,” he said.
“We should put the right measures in place and plan well for the future to ensure we avoid this disgrace next time.”
The Asantehene also asked requested to have a one-on-one chat with the playing to get to know their problems.
