Ghanaian midfielder, Maxwell Baakoh has rendered an apology to the supporters of his former club, Asante Kotoko for how he ended his stay with them.
The 27-year-old midfielder joined the Ghana Premier League giants on a two-year deal from Karela United ahead of their 2018 CAF Confederation Cup campaign. He had an incredible debut season with Asante Kotoko during the competition until he sustained a knee injury.
Baakoh’s stint at Asante Kotoko was hampered by a series of injuries that keep him out of action for several months but he was able to play a key role to help them reach the knockout phase of the CAF Confederation Cup in 2019.
His departure marked a sad moment for the supporters. They were sad to see the former GPL winner leave the club following the expiration of his contract in 2020.
Many supporters slammed him for turning down contract extension offers from the club but he has revealed that things didn’t go on well as planned.
However, in all the accusations, Baakoh insists his love for Kotoko and the fan base remains solid as ever. He additionally disclosed that the truth was not to them.
“I want to take this opportunity to apologize to the supporters for what happened. Things didn’t go on well as planned but the truth was not told to them. Whatever they said wasn’t true. I am apologizing for that. I still follow the club and feel sad whenever they lose.
“It was even rumoured that I was treated in Germany and South Africa but it wasn’t true. I was never treated in Germany or South Africa but I was treated in Ghana here. I spent one week at the hospital but none of the management members of the club visited or called to check up”, Maxwell Baako told Ghanasportspage.com.
