Ugly scenes as Chelsea break Kotoko run



It was an unbeaten run shouted from the rooftops by their faithful, but on Sunday, reds fans did not take kindly to being beaten 2-0 by the Blues in Berekum.

Twelve games after a slow start, Kotoko could not take anything from a Ghana Premier League game for the first time this season, and it was one of theirs who hit them.

Former reds' favorite Eric Bekoe coolly lobbed the ball over Soulama Abdoulaye with just under half an hour played, and then killed the game later on. Eric's two goals may have gone unnoticed, but his celebrations were very much an eye-catcher.

Reaction

Kotoko players were unhappy with a few refereeing decisions in Berekum and tried calling the officials out, with some fans also throwing objects.

<> But Bekoe himself explained after the game that he does not have "any grudge against Kotoko", insisting that he is "a true fan and son of the club."

The reds are now fifth on the table, as the blues finished the penultimate game of the year on top with 24 points.
