A renowned Serbian journalist Dejan Stojanovic has allegedly revealed that FK Jagodina presented a team of fake players to face Asante Kotoko in an anniversary match which the porcupine warriors won 5-0 on Sunday.
The Serbian team arrived in the country on Saturday, a day before playing Kotoko in Kumasi, with 11 players and four Kotoko youngsters whom they described as trialists at the club on their bench. In the game, they also used a Ghanaian player by name, Ebenezer Agyapong who Techiman City have threatened to report to FIFA for unlawfully being fielded by the Serbian club.
Stojanovi, has slammed the behaviour of Jagodina and told GazzettaGhana.com that, "It is shame for Jagodina to come without key players, and to lose 5-0. If they came with all players, result would probably be different. People there in Kumasi come to stadium to see serious Europe team, but Jagodina disappoint them with fake players,”.
He hinted that most of the players were young 18-19 years old players, with some of them playing in a 3 league club with Tabane which is the B-team of Jagodina.
Meanwhile, Ghana Premier League new entrants Techiman City FC are set to report Serbian side FK Jagodina to FIFA over the unlawful use of their player, Ebenezer Agyapong in their friendly encounter with Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
He came on in the 56th minute to play for the Serbians who embarrassingly were walloped 5-0 by the Ghanaian club.
