Head coach of Asante Kotoko, Prosper Narteh Ogum is not too happy with the performance of his charges despite returning to winning ways.
The lecturer-cum coach, supervised a return to winning ways after three games without a victory in the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season.
The Porcupine Warriors traveled down south as guests of Legon Cities FC which happen to house their former coach, Maxwell Konadu.
The week nine encounter at the Dawu Park saw Kotoko take the lead courtesy Cameroonian striker, Franck Etouga on the 29th minute.
Ahmed Rahman’s header will beat Razak Abalora in post for Kotoko on the 33rd minute for the Royals’ equalizer.
Franck Etouga brought the two time African champions back into the lead with 77 minutes on the clock, following an assist from fellow Cameroonian, Georges Mfegue.
The win is Kotoko’s first in four games after a goalless draw at Karela in week five, a 3-2 loss at home to King Faisal in week six and a 1-1 draw at the Baba Yara Stadium to RTU in the eighth.
Prosper Narteh Ogum said: “I wasn’t satisfied with the performance, if you look at the way we played, that’s not typically how we play.
“When we scored we were playing better but because the goal we conceded was a bad goal, it just took the zeal out of our team and basically that made us to be a bit distracted.
“But then when we went into the dressing room, I told them those things happen in the game and we need to pick the pieces together.
“So in terms of performance wise, I’m not happy about the way we played especially after we conceded but before we conceded I think we were solid, we were marking, we were tackling, we were passing the ball well,” Prosper Narteh told StarTimes.
“But then because of the nature of the goal, we just went off,” Prosper Narteh told StarTimes.
“If you look at when we even scored the first goal, we had about two, three quick chances that we could have made it game over but then we still went sleeping and it’s not good.
“I’m talk to them about that; sometimes you score and you get the chances, you need to score again and then you could make it game over so that you can relax and play your game.” Prosper Narteh added.
The record Ghana Premier League holders, [24 titles] have now racked up 17 points with a week seven outstanding against rivals, Hearts of Oak. Their next fixture is against West Africa Football Academy in week 10 at the Baba Yara Stadium.
