Former skipper of Asante Kotoko Joseph Hendricks has dismissed claims suggesting that they were promised houses to win the 2004 CAF Confederation Cup against bitter rivals Hearts of Oak.
Yusif Chibsah, who was part of the team that lost the final in 2004 recently revealed that they were promised a house each to win the trophy.
However, Joseph Hendricks who was the leader of the team at that time has rubbished those claims, he disclosed that they were at no point promised houses to win the game.
“Who said we were promised houses in 2004 Caf Confederation cup final against the Phobians that person is a liar, I was the leader ( captain of the team) and we never discussed that with the management or promised from the management,” he told Boss FM.
“I can claim emphatically that we weren’t aware of any winning bonus before we played the first leg at Accra.
“I remember after the first leg the next day which was Monday, all the players assembled and complained we must know the winning bonus before return encounter in Kumasi,” he added.
Joe Hendricks was one of the two Kotoko players who missed their spot kicks in the 2004 Confederation cup final.
