Opoku,Sasraku in training bust-up

on

Aduana Stars midfielder Elvis Opoku was on Saturday involved in a training ground bust-up with his teammate Derrick Sasraku resulting in him being assaulted by the 23-year-old striker.

According to reports, the duo had a heated exchange of words on numerous occasions whenever Opoku would protest against the former Asante Kotoko marksman’s hard tackles during training.

Ironically, Aduana did not take action against the pair, which infuriated Opoku who interpreted the club’s stance on the issue as racially inspired but has since forgiven his teammate.

“I don’t know what came over him. The issue was not even between the two of us. It was between Zakaria Mumuni and Stephen Anokye Badu. I went in to calm nerves. This is how I ended up but I’ve forgiven him” Elvis said in an interview with Accra -based portal FootballMadeInGhana.

The Ghana Premier League Champions are preparing for CAF Champions League clash against Setif of Algeria in a match slated for Sunday, away.

“He is still my best friend. As friends, these things normally happen. That’s what tests the strength of your friendship. I don’t want him to be down because we need him on Sunday against the Algerians as we strive to qualify to the next stage of the CAF Champions League,”Opoku added.

Aduana’s public relations officer Evans Kwaku was yesterday not reachable to comment on the action the club was likely to take on the incident.

However sources close to the club has informed us the management has decided to drop the duo pending the approval of club’s bankroller.
