The club’s communications officer Benjamin Kessie has written the following to the media ahead of Medeama’s second leg Caf Confederation Cup game against Mamelodi Sundowns.
The attention of management of Medeama SC has been drawn to news making rounds on social and regular media that Tom Strand supposedly left Medeama because of match fixing.
We want to state categorically that the information is palpable falsehood and calculated attempts to sway our attention from the task ahead.
Neither Tom Strand nor his agent has said anything near the supposed allegation of match fixing.
We therefore admonish our supporters, well wishers and relevant stakeholders to ignore this negative and malicious reportage and rally behind the Club to reach the Ultimate.
We also want to state clearly that this cooked report will not stop us from qualifying into the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.
We will never give up. That is the tenet of our motto.
