Fa wonkwaseasem k) . Fool u deliberately did that and now pretending. We Kotoko fans and the playing body don’t care about your stupid celebration because we are Kotoko the biggest in Africa. We are the two times Africa champions and club of the century. We have also heard that some of you berekum Chelsea supporters beat our physical trainer during Kwame Opoku’s goal when he was celebrating it and trust me we will pay back in Kumasi very soon we will return to Baba Yara soon.
