Former Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe has opened up on his surprise exit from the club after only one season.

Bekoe scored an incredible 17 goals in 23 matches as he won the top goalscorer award in the 2007/08 Ghana Premier League season.

He also won the league title as well as the Presidents Cup with the Porcupine Warriors in the same year.

However, the 33-year-old swapped Kotoko for Petrojet in Egypt after spending only one season with the Kumasi based side.

According to the former Berekum Chelsea striker, Kotoko didn't use me like Petrojet as he was injected to play for them on regularly basis.

"It's because of the Genesis with which I came to Kotoko because If you look at the long winding route I passed before reaching Kotoko it was tiresome," he told Kumasi based Akoma Fm.

"Kotoko didn't use me like Petrojet where I was being injected to play week in week out and I had qualified the team to Africa"

"When I reached Petrojet you could see I was very stressed If you see my picture when I was signing you would ask is he the same person who played for Kotoko."
