Asante Kotoko’s sworn rivals Hearts of Oak are the latest to extend their benevolence by donating to the ‘’tragedy struck’’ Porcupine Warriors following a visit to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) on Tuesday.
The Phobians travelled to Kumasi not for an intense clash, as is often the case during this time of the season, but to empathize with the Kotoko fraternity following the unfortunate incident last Wednesday.
Kotoko were involved in a tragic accident on their way to Kumasi after a Ghana Premier League game in Accra against Inter Allies which resulted in the demise of deputy equipment manager Thomas Asare and head coach Steven Polack needing surgery.
