Operations Manager of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Ernest Owusu Ansah has urged the playing body and supporters of Asante Kotoko to remain hopeful despite the team’s recent poor form.
Kotoko displayed brilliant performance on Monday at the Accra Sports Stadium in the 60th Independence Anniversary match against Hearts .
The Porcupines however lost 3-1 but the Operations Manager was happy with the club’s good performance and is hopeful the team will find it feet soon.
“You watch our matches and you see that, luck has eluded us” he told the players in a meeting in Accra on Tuesday.
“We play well most of the time but the goals don’t come. The manner in which we lose some of our matches has also been surprising” he said.
Kotoko await Hearts in Kumasi for the second leg of the anniversary match on May 28, 2017. Within the interval are two league matches starting this Saturday with Olympics in Accra and then to Kumasi where they host Tema Youth.
“We lost but thankfully it was the first leg. We can turn things around in the second match but until then, let’s put this behind us and move on” advised the Operations Manager.
“You should have the confidence that, you can still make it, With the caliber of players we have, I believe we can still win the league. We have to close the gap between us and Aduana Stars. Don’t lose hope; beat Olympics on Saturday and things will start coming back to normalcy”.
