Ex-Kotoko Coach Bashir Hayford Blasts ‘ungrateful’ Ghanaian Pair Harrison Afful and Samuel Inkoom

Former Asante Kotoko coach Bashir Hayford has lashed out at ‘ungrateful’ Ghanaian pair Samuel Inkoom and Harrison, claiming neglect after given the duo a career lifeline during his time at the Ghanaian giants.

The hard-hitting Ebusua Dwarfs gaffer says he risked his job by fielding the two players during his reign in Kumasi after the duo were rejected by the club’s top hierarchy.

He says the club’s management kicked against the two players for being pocket-size in nature but says he stood his ground to give them a career lift.

However, the former Ashantigold coach says the two players have neglected him after becoming relatively successful in their careers.

“Samuel Inkoom and Harrison Afful were depending on me for daily bread before being accepted by Kotoko. But none of them have given me a gift.” he told Radio Silver.

Afful, who plays for Major Soccer League side Columbus Crew, spent two-years in Kumasi between 2007-9 while free agent Samuel Inkoom spent a season at the club.
