Sogne Yabouca has been in the wilderness and it seems he’ll be staying there for a bit longer.
Yacouba’s troubles started last season when he got injured while he was hot. He had four goals in five games in Kotoko’s CAF Confederation Cup run.
Then he was a wanted man in South Africa (Orlando Pirates) and Zambia (Zesco United) - the interest got to a point where the Burkinabe international pushed for an exit. His actions led to the club to put him in the naughty schoolboy corner.
Now the worst blow, which is the second, has seen an omission from the Porcupine Warriors squad traveling to face Etoile Du Sahel in a CAF Champions League game. The striker has flatly denied reports of injury.
"I am very fit and do not know why I was dropped from the squad to Tunisia, the coach named his squad and I wasn't part of it," Yacouba told Kumasi FM.
"The coach did not give any reason for axing me from the squad. You cannot assess me with just ten minutes of play against Etoile du Sahel,” added the 28-year-old.
Kotoko will travel to Tunisia to avoid a 3-0 loss. The Ghanaians carry a 2-0 lead from the first leg in Kumasi.
