Ashantigold defender Richard Osei Agyemang has confirmed that he was attacked with a knife by a fan after the club’s 1-0 win over Medeama on Sunday.
The former Asante Kotoko defender was red carded with 20 minutes to end the game, drawing the fury of fans of the club.
A remorseful Agyemang admitted his red card was not intentional but he always has the club at heart hence the desire to give his all.
“I can never say I am bigger than Ashgold, you cannot begrudge the supporters for their actions, they are supporters and will remain, supporters,” he told Oyerepa FM. “They are same people who will hail me when things go right,” he added.
“It’s true, a fan threatened me with a knife but it took the intervention of some people who rescued me,” he revealed.
“I am still an Ashgold player and so will come back after my suspension and play for Ashgold.
“The red card I received wasn’t intentional, my face is swollen and I feel pains all over so why will I intentionally do that,” he quizzed.
Agyemang will miss Ashantigold’s trip to Berekum Chelsea in midweek due to suspension.
