We’ve learnt nothing from May 9 disaster – Godfred Yeboah

Former Asante Kotoko left-back Godfred Yeboah believes lessons from the May 9 disaster have not been taking serious considering how some fans still misbehave during games in the Ghana Premier League.

Yeboah, known as TV 3 in his playing days, and a member of the Kotoko side that played the game was lamenting on how the shocking disaster occured and how fans still misbehave at match venues.

The match claimed the lives of 127 people due to the stampede, but Godfred Yeboah insists we haven’t learned from what happened that night as the act of holiganism still happens at our various stadia.

“We haven’t learned anything serious from the May Night Disaster. Some fans are still misbehaving at various league centres which don’t sound well of us as Ghanaians.

“The game is not about hooliganism, its a game of Win, lose or draw,” he noted in an interview with sportsnetgh.

Yeboah again revealed how confident Kotoko players were ahead of the game but were amazed by the score line.

“I never thought Kotoko could loose 2-1 to Hearts of Oak on that May 9.

“We had quality team and we were confident of picking all the three points on that day. I still don’t understand how we lots that game.

Saturday marked the 19th anniversary of the unfortunate incident which occurred at the Accra Sports Stadium.
