Embarrassing! Netizens fume over Kotoko’s controversial penalty against Samartex


Following Asante Kotoko’s narrow victory over Samartex on Sunday, April 21, 2024, some local football enthusiasts expressed their dissatisfaction with a penalty awarded to Kotoko during the match.

The controversy arose when Emmanuel Kotei delivered a cross into the Samartex box, where Peter Aminu attempted to make a connection but collided with a Samartex defender.

The referee swiftly awarded Asante Kotoko a penalty, prompting protests from the Samartex team, who argued they were the victims of a foul.

Enoch Morrison successfully converted the penalty in the second half, securing a 1-0 win for Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
