Goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama has been accused of taking a bribe to help in the elimination of Asante Kotoko from the CAF Champions League.

The Ghanaian giants crashed out of the competition after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Barrack Young Controllers on Sunday.

The narrow defeat saw the Liberian side progress on the away goals rule after the aggregate scoreline was evened 2-2.

Kotoko’s goalkeeper Soulama has however been blamed for conceding a cheeky goal which saw the side crash out of the competition.

Rumours fast gaining grounds has accused the Burkina Faso international for taking a $3000 bribe from officials of BYC hours before the game played in Monrovia.

Soulama was said to have met officials of the Liberian club at dawn to negotiate his reward for aiding their passage by conceding a soft goal.

Kotoko are however yet to officially comment on these unsubstantiated claims.

The reigning Ghanaian champions have now failed to make it to the group stage of the Champions League in two successive campaigns.
