Head coach of Asante Kotoko, Prosper Narteh Ogum has indicated his resolve to gradually inculcate the best football philosophy into the playing body.
The Porcupine Warriors had to fight to recover from a goal down to put three past Dreams FC in their opening 2021/22 league fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium last Saturday.
Kotoko actually went down to the “Still Believe” lads first when Black Stars winger, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku swept past four defenders to burry the opener on the 64th minute
Kotoko had to dig deep with midfielder, Salifu Mudasiru finding the equalizer on the 84th minute after he was set up by teenage sensation, Isaac Oppong.
Three minutes after pulling parity, Kotoko shot themselves into the lead with Issac Oppong taking advantage of Dreams FC’s poor clearance after Patrick Asmah’s cross to smash home the second goal.
The record Ghana Premier League holders nailed the Dreams FC coffin with the third goal when lanky midfielder, Richmond Lamptey drove from the distance in added time.
The result has left football pundits and fans already tipping Kotoko to win the league title following the shining display.
Prosper Narteh said of the new model he wants to introduce into Asante Kotoko’s playing body
“I think it will take a lot of a time to understand each other as I said, it is a process we want to bring on board and in bringing a process on board we need to keep working on it.
“So we have to be repetitive in what we want to do in terms of our training so that those concept that we want to get down into the minds of the players can be cemented very well and I know with time as the league unfolds, I think they will grow in confidence, they will grow in stature and they will grow their ability to play automatically.” Prosper Narteh Ogum said.
Asante Kotoko will continue their project towards the premier league title chase with the season’s second game against Bechem United at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday, October 5 at 3:00pm.
