Speak like a professional - Ibrahim Tanko fires Aduana coach

Head Coach of Ghana Black Stars B Ibrahim Tanko has unequivocally condemned the verball attacks of Aduana Stars head coach W.O. Tandoh on Maxwell Konadu and Asante Kotoko, describing it as unprofessional.

Tandoh, head coach of Aduana Stars, after securing a 1-0 win over Asante Kotoko at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park on Sunday described The Porcu[ine Warriors as a ‘Village Team.’

The game which took a dramatic turn saw both sides playing the first half with 10 men for reasons yet to be made public.

Tandoh in interview with Angel FM in Accra after the game described the Kotoko side a village club considering how they played.

“Is this village football what they are taking to London? Tandoh quizzed in reference to Kotoko’s Independence Anniversary clash with Hearts of Oak.

“Kotoko came to play superstition and not football because they know we have better players than them,” he continued.

Tandoh aggressively jumped on Maxwell Konadu after he seemed to have finished with Kotoko.

“Maxwell is a national team manager isn’t it? He is a disgrace to football. Did you see his line up on the paper? He started with players on the bench before those who started the game. What is this nonsense for? He lamented.

But Tanko believes Tandoh’s attack on Maxwell and Kotoko are unfounded and unwarranted.

“Maxwell is not a village coach. Maxwell is one of the best we have in this country,” Tanko tweeted.

“How could you descend so low and make such ‘unprofessional’ comments about a colleague? Tanko asked.

“The fact that you won the game doesn’t guarantee you to call a colleague coach a village coach.

“Don’t forget you lost 5:2 to Liberty last weekend. Must the Liberty coach call you uncivilized coach? Tanko added.

The comments of W.O. Tandoh has swept through the Ghanaian sports media like bush fire in the harmattan, generating varied comments from several people.
