Databank CEO willing to apologize to Aduana Stars

The Chief Executive of Databank, Kojo Addae-Mensah has pledged to apologize to Aduana Stars if they qualify for the next phase of the CAF Champions League.

After Aduana Stars clinched the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League season, Mr Addae-Mensah insisted that the Dormaa-based club does not deserve to win the championship due to the negative tactics deployed to intimidate teams at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park during the campaign.

The staunch Asante Kotoko supporter categorically tipped the Fire Boys to exit the Champions League at the first stage of the preliminary round, which he believed the alleged adverse tactics they used in the league will not yield in the competition.

However, the Databank boss seems repented as he vowed he'll apologize to the club should they qualify past the first stage ahead of their second leg against Libyan side Al Tahaddy at the Nana Agyemang Badu II Park on Wednesday.

"I stand by my position that WAFA was the best club in last season's Ghana league," Kojo Addae-Mensah told Happy FM.

"But I think we should all support Aduana stars because they're representing Ghana in Africa."

"Knowing Aduana stars when playing in Dormaa, I doubt if Al Tahaddy can survive."

"If Aduana stars go pass the group stages, I will apologize to them," he deduced.

Aduana will go into with a 1-0 deficit after losing the first leg in Egypt a fortnight ago.
