My players will get better -Kotoko coach

Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Sporting Club, has called for patience for his young players to grow into their own as the club struggles in the opening weeks of the 2023-2024 Betpawa Premier League.

Kotoko endured another frustrating draw at home after playing out a 1-1 draw with Karela United; the Porcupine Warriors remain winless three games into the season.

Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum says despite his team’s profligacy in front of goal, he is impressed with his side’s ability to create goal scoring chances.

He said this in the post game interview after Kotoko drew 1-1 with Karela at the Baba Yara Stadium in the third round of games in the 2023-2024 Betpawa Premier League.

The draw means Kotoko is still winless in the league this season after losing 1-2 to Bibiani Gold Stars and drawing goalless with Kpando Heart of Lions in the previous games.

While lamenting the wastefulness of his side in front of goal, Dr. Ogum was upbeat that creating chances was a positive sign from his lads.

“All that we have to do is to keep practicing more goal scoring drills, giving them the confidence to be composed in front of goal, they need to pick their spot, apply the right technique and then that should be it.

So we need to encourage them, it’s better to create the chances and if you miss, it’s good than you don’t create at all because if you create it means the possibility of scoring is high. We are creating more…so it’s a good signal for the team.”

Kotoko plays Accra Lions on Monday, October 9 at 18:00 GMT at the Accra Sports Stadium next.
