Kumasi Asante Kotoko defender Awudu Nafiu has revealed that players need to work hard for each other as they seek to turn things around for the club.
Nafiu said that supporting each other on and off the pitch and getting the backing and prayers of the supporters is the key to positively turning around the unimpressive performance of the club.
The Porcupines have dropped from second to fifth on the league log after going six matches without a win in the ongoing Ghana Premier league competition.
“We are not doing too well as was expected of us but it won’t take us the players alone to improve things. We have a role to play and that perhaps is the biggest of all the roles, We have to fight for each other and play as a team” said Nafiu.
“We also need the backing of everyone, the players who don’t play regularly. We can’t do it when we file onto the pitch on match days to an empty stadium. We need the fans too. We can’t turn things around when the fans abandon us. The fans are our backbone. We depend on their prayers and support to win. Things will be very difficult without them” he stated.
The Reds would be seeking for a win on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium when they face Great Olympics in the Ghana Premier League after a painful 60th independence anniversary match defeat against Hearts of Oak on the same pitch on Monday.
