The agent for Songne Yacouba, Mr. Juantuah has denied claims by a section of the media that his client has refused to submit his passport for renewal of his work permit.

Juntuah was speaking in an interview with local radio station ASH Fm in Kumasi on Tuesday afternoon.

His client who plays for Kumasi Asante Kotoko has not been able to play for the club because of the expiration of his work permit.

“It took us about five minutes to collect the passport from Songne to the Kotoko |Management when they requested, so it is never true that he decided not to give his passport for renewal,” Juntuah explained.

“I do not know how he got hold his passport beacuse all his documents are with the Kotoko management|”, he added.

He then asked the media and fans to refrain from all the unnecessary confusion they are causing between the player and the team.
