Asante Kotoko, Ghana’s sole representatives at the 2019 Caf Confederation Cup, have been fined $4000 by the continent football’s governing body for the poor state of seats in their dug-out during the championship.

Several visiting teams had aired their complaints over the quality of the seats in the Kumasi-based side’s dug-out, where coaches and substitutes normally sit during a match.

The Porcupine Warriors forced their way to play in the Caf Confederation Cup amid the football crises in Ghana and had an impressive campaign, reaching the group stage for the first time in 11 years.

Kotoko faced Kenya’s Kariobangi Sharks, Coton Sport of Cameroon, Zambian duo Zesco United and Nkana FC and Al Hilal from Sudan.

The Porcupines currently top Zone A of the Special Competition with 10 points.
