Issah Ahmed pokes Kotoko coach Dramani over Helegbe's omission

The former Porcupine is on the neck of the coach for failing to start the player in a crucial encounter with the Algerian side that crashed them out of the competition
Former Asante Kotoko skipper, Issah Ahmed, is demanding answers from Mas-Ud Didi Dramani as to why experienced Michael Helegbe was sidelined in a crucial game against JSM Bejaia on Sunday.

The stalwart defender who was part of the Black Stars squad that made it to the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt is outraged about Helegbe’s relegation to the bench in their second-leg encounter in Kumasi.

“Why should Helegbe be left on the bench when they needed him the most? Mas-ud Didi has to explain some positive answers to the fans of #Kotoko,” Ahmed wrote on his twitter handle.

He added that it takes players with what he termed ‘big heart’ to stand out in the Asante Kotoko jersey.

“To play for Kotoko you need a big heart to impress the supporters of #Kotoko,” he added.

His tweets followed immediately after his former club was eliminated from the Caf Champions League by Algeria’s JSM Bejaia owing to the away goal’s rule.
