Head coach of Legon Cities FC, Maxwell Konadu is now seated on jagged edge after their narrow loss to his former club, Asante Kotoko.
The Royals posted a spirited performance under the watch of the experienced trainer but it was not enough to earn them a point or three at the temporarily adopted Dawu Park in week nine on Sunday.
Legon Cities went down to Franck Etouga’s 29th minute strike but will quickly regroup and equalize from Ahmed Rahman’s header on the 33rd minute. The score line stayed at 1-1 into the break.
Back from recess, the Porcupine Warriors nailed their hosts on the 77th minute with the Cameroonian import registering Kotoko’s second and his third goal of the season.
The Royals panted for breath in search of the equalizer but could not find any means to do so, gifting all three points to the visitors.
The defeat has not sat well with head coach, Maxwell Konadu.
“I mean, we created the chances alright, our boys failed to score.
“If we had converted our chances, we wouldn’t have been at this position.
“Having said that, the boys did well,” Maxwell Konadu told StarTimes.
“With the goalkeeper to beat, what can you teach a player to do, only the goalkeeper to beat?
“That is football, we understand it, sometimes you create the chances you can’t convert them but the most important thing is, the player that missed that glorious opportunity is 16-years.
“So we are happy with him, we are not going to put any pressure on him.
“Just that we will keep encouraging him to do his best when the chance comes the next time.
“It’s a worry, I mean, it’s a worry. Everybody saw the game we played. We are not going to change our ways. We will continue to play and play like that until we start winning.
“I mean the game itself is good but the score line is always a problem for us.” Maxwell Konadu added.
Legon Cities have now gone seven games without a win and that could put Maxwell Konadu’s job on the line.
In their last five games, they have managed to pick just two points out of a possible 15 – suffering three defeats and claiming two draws.
They manage only seven points from nine games, same as Elmina Sharks and seated 17th on the league table. They will next be at the Nduom Stadium as guests of Elmina Sharks in week 10.
