he former Petroget goal poacher also made it known that he is in support of the league being autonomously run.

Former Black Stars and Kotoko striker, Eric Bekoe, has revealed in an interview on Angel TV Sports that his former club, Kumasi Asante Kotoko did not sell his replica jerseys when he was playing for the Porcupine Warriors.

According to him, the team rather sold his jerseys after he decided to seek greener pastures in Egypt. He attributed this to the lack of marketing strategies that the club lacked at the time.

The former Petrojet goal poacher also made it known that he is in support of the league being autonomously run. He stated that it will make the league lucrative, thereby curing player exodus.

On his remuneration when he was playing for Kotoko, he mentioned that if it had been packaged well, he could have played at least three seasons before exiting the club. He further extolled the virtues of Kotoko by claiming that it is rewarding playing for Kotoko. According to him, playing for Kotoko has created opportunities for him and his family.

Eric Bekoe honed his goal scoring prowess at local club, Liberty Professionals before moving to Kpando Heart of Lions to continue his career. He later made a career changing move to Kumasi Asante Kotoko where he won the President's Cup and the goal king accolade just after a season, making him a household name in Ghana football. After winning the league with Kumasi Asante Kotoko in 2008, he signed for Egyptian club, Petrojet.

He had his first appearance for the senior national team of Ghana, the Ghana Black Stars in a friendly match against Mexico in March, 2008. He went on to play in the World Cup qualification games against Gabon and Libya.
