Asante Kotoko legal representative against Emmanuel Clottey, Lawyer Sarfo Duku ESq has taken a swipe at Clottey after the player accused him of bribery.

Clottey, whose case against Kotoko was dismissed disclosed in an interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM that, Lawyer Duku discussed with him a compensation of GH 300,000 for an out-of-court settlement of the case, but he rejected before Wednesday’s ruling.

Responding to the claims, Lawyer Duku, who represented the Porcupine Warriors against the striker denied trying to grease his palms with that offer.

He explained that he came to meet that arrangement, but advised the Executive Chairman Kwame Kyei to allow the case to be continued at the court because he was convinced Kotoko will win the case.

“I do not want to say Emmanuel Clottey is unwise,it sound too strong but his level of appreciation of certain things is very low,” he told Kumasi FM.

“I had always maintained Emmanuel Clottey has no case in his suit against us,how would I turn to bribe him for an out of court settlement? Sometimes after sessions at the court room he will jovially tell us to get him some amount of money for an out of court settlement.In some few times I have to give him transportation fee back home.

He continued:”Before I joined Kotoko,I understand Dr Kwame Kyei tried engaging him for a mutual understanding in settling the issue rather than resorting to the law court. In one of my conversation with him I asked his demands for an out of court settlement and he requested for GHC100,000.He kept pressuring me to talk to Dr Kwame Kyei for a token so the case will be brought out of court but I insisted Kotoko had a fine case to continue in court after he had rejected our earlier plea.We never approached him with any amount of money.

He also indicated that he felt Clottey was ignorant about his own case.

“Emmanuel Clottey from the beginning was ignorant of his own case and misled his lawyers. He didn’t understand the ruling from FIFA. The court had sympathy for him until we tendered in excess of twenty-three(23) documents,the court got a fair idea of the case afterwards.

“Clottey is a fine player but lacks understanding in his own field,his age does not correspond with his intelligence,” he concluded.
