Kotoko goalkeeper Soulama vows to give his blood in clearing his name of bribery allegations
Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye says he will conduct his own investigations to clear his name of allegations of bribery leveled against him.
The Burkina Faso international is alleged to have received a $3000 bribe to help Barrack Young Controllers oust Kotoko from the CAF Champions League.
Soulama is said to have allowed the concession of a cheeky goal in the return clash of the first round tie as part of his bargain in receiving the bribe from the Liberian club.
The Ghanaian giants exited from the Champions League after the 1-0 defeat against BYC last Sunday in Monrovia.
Kotoko failed to progress against the unknown BYC side on the away goals rule having taken a slim 2-1 advantage into the second leg.
It is however the unsubstantiated allegations of bribery that has hogged the headlines in the aftermath of Kotoko’s disappointing exit.
The man in the middle of these allegations, Soulama Abdoulaye, Asante Kotoko’s goalkeeper now pledges to fight until his last blood to clear his name.
“I will do my investigation by myself. Wherever that matter came from, I have to find out,” he told Metro FM.
“I will never stop finding that thing. I will check and check until my last blood and see what will happen.
“I am a Muslim, I know how to do my prayers and I know God will fight for me too.”
The 34-year-old has been with Asante Kotoko since 2007 – during which period he has helped the side to several domestic feats especially in the Ghana Premier League.
