The management of Nsoatreman FC has called on the Ghana Police Service to investigate an incident of hooliganism that occurred at the Sunyani Coronation Park.
The matchday 11 encounter between home team Bofoakwa Tano and Nsoatreman FC witnessed an invasion of the pitch by some home fans.
This led to an attack on Nsoatreman FC coach Maxwell Konadu, who was later hospitalised, and some players also attacked.
A statement released by Nsoatreman FC condemned the unprovoked and unwarranted acts of hooliganism meted out at their head coach, who they said was receiving treatment at the Sunyani Regional Hospital.
‘We are by this statement calling on the Ghana Police Service to, as a matter of urgency, investigate, arrest, and prosecute the miscreants who brought our game into disrepute by this act of hooliganism.
‘We call on our supporters to remain calm, as management will do everything possible to ensure that justice is done as far as this matter is concerned,’ the statement said.
