Fiifi Forson|myghanalinks - Former Asante Kotoko captain Daniel Nii Adjei says the Porcupine Warriors must give a chance to controversial Bernard Dong Bortey to prove his worth for the
Kumasi -based club after the winger pleaded for the chance to play for the Ghanaian giants.
Bortey , who is a free agent after his sojourn in Equatorial Guinea, issued a passionate plea last week to the Kotoko leadership to give him the chance to play for the club.
The former Hearts of Oak Winger has previously been accused of playing tricks on the Porcupines when they sought the opportunity to sign him in his prime.
Now that Bortey is virtually begging for the chance to play for the Porcupines, Nii Adjei , who now plays for DR Congo side TP Mazembe , says Bortey must be given the chance. “I think they should offer him the chance. The player has stated he is dying to wear the red jersey for once in his lifetime to compete for the club.
It is his dream to add Asante Kotoko to the clubs he has played for in his career . I think he should be considered,” Nii Adjei said. “ But it depends on Kotoko, if they think they need him , they should give him the chance. But I feel that he should be given the chance.
In another development, former Asante Kotoko midfielder, Yahaya Mohammed, in a bid to relaunch his career with the Porcupine Warriors, has called on a very influential person at the Manhyia Palace to champion the cause for him.
Mohammed was the toast of Kotoko fans during his spell at the club but attitudinal issues made him unpopular among their teeming followers.
According to media reports, he has consulted the owner of the club, His Majesty, Otumfour Osei Tutu II, to plead on his behalf to rejoin the club ahead of the start 2014/15 football season.
