Ex midfielder for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Yussif Chibsah has revealed the emotional pains he went through after losing the CAF Confederation Cup final to rivals Accra Hearts Of Oak some 15 years ago.
In a interview with Citi TV’s the Tracker, Chibsah said:
“I was hurt for three days, I didn’t go out. For three days I was indoors, it was unbelievable because we had Hearts of Oak, we had control and then we had no excuses to have lost that cup but casting my mind back, Hearts of Oak were just destined to win that game,” he told Benjamin Nketsia on Citi Tv’s The Tracker show.
“If you look at the first leg in Accra, we went ahead to score, they equalized in the injury time and in Kumasi we went ahead to score, they equalized and won with penalties. So in both games we were on top and like I said it was just destiny,” he added.
Michael Donkor’s last penalty kick gave Accra Hearts of Oak a dramatic 8-7 penalty shootout win over Asante Kotoko in the maiden edition of the CAF Confederations Cup final at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi after the two legs ended 2-2 on aggregate.
