Asante Kotoko has suspended 'indiscipline' Joseph Amoako following a social media spat with fans

Asante Kotoko said on Tuesday that winger Joseph Amoako has been banned indefinitely awaiting a final verdict through the club’s disciplinary processes.

Amoako was suspended following his misbehaviour on social media with fans and the publishing of leaked audio on microblogging sites.

Amoako, who just returned to the club following a loan spell with Helsingborgs IF in Sweden, got into an argument with the Kumasi-based team’s supporters on Facebook, which resulted in some of the fans assaulting him.

As a result of his misbehaviour, the 20-year-old winger has been suspended from all club activities indefinitely.

Amoako was previously arrested by Swedish police in November 2022 for having sexual relations with a juvenile. Due to the rape claims, Helsingborgs IF cancelled his loan agreement before the contract expired in January.

The brilliant young winger was first found guilty on two charges and sentenced to 24 months in prison by the Helsingborgs District Court, but he was released after an appeal.

Amoako struggled for playing time at Helsingborgs IF, appearing in only 10 games (295 minutes) in all competitions.

King Faisal relegated from Ghana Premier League

King Faisal has been relegated from the betPawa Premier League and will play in Division One.

Their relegation was sealed when Karela United defeated Bibiani GoldStars 3-2 at the Crosby Awuah Memorial (CAM) Park.

With one game left in the season, King Faisal’s destiny is determined, since they will finish no higher than 16th, regardless of the results of the last matches.

King Faisal is currently in 17th position with 39 points, three points behind Tamale City, who is narrowly outside the relegation zone.

If King Faisal wins their final game of the season and Tamale City loses, they will have equaled Tamale City’s point total. However, owing to their weaker head-to-head record against Tamale City this season (a 4-1 advantage for Tamale City), King Faisal would be unable to finish ahead of them.

King Faisal joins Kotoku Royals as the second Premier League team to be demoted this season.

On the last day of the season, the final relegation position will be determined. Hearts of Oak, Karela United, Accra Lions, Legon Cities, Tamale City, and Great Olympics are all fighting for survival.
