Ghana Premier League giants, Kumasi Asante Kotoko have announced that four players and four officials of the club have tested positive for Coronavirus upon arrival from Sudan.
The Porcupine Warriors were eliminated from the CAF Champions League without kicking the ball in the second leg of their match with Al Hilal after they failed to produce the required number of players.
The game was initially called off after seven players and four officials from Kotoko were earlier reported to have tested positive for the virus but the club questioned the validity of the results.
A few hours after the game was called off, the Porcupine Warriors were knocked out of the competition after Al-Hilal were declared winners of the tie.
Kotoko will now compete in the CAF Confederation Cup where they have been paired with Algerian giants ES Setif.
The players and officials are currently self isolating with the rest of the team in camp preparing for their next game in the Ghana Premier League.
