Not so cool Asante Kotoko

Great teams lose with grace, and accept the sometimes unpredictable decisions of the referee, in spite of disagreeing with them.
In Ghana, Asante Kontoko's players may still be hurt for losing the Confederation's Cup final to rivals from Hearts of Oak, but in yesterday's match, the Kotoko players displayed some deplorable behavior; tying 1-1 against Kpando Hearts of Lions, a penalty was awarded to Lions in the last minute of the match. Protesting strongly, the Kotoko players left the pitch, and the game had to be cancelled.
Losing is never fun. But it is a deplorable of a team pretending to be on the lead in Africa.
Kotoko is not so cool!
