Ex-Ghana international, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has urged Asante Kotoko fans to understand the rebuilding process of the club.
Returnee coach, Prosper Narteh Ogum has signed a couple of young players who will need time to gel with the few experienced ones.
The Porcupine Warriors were held to goalless draw in their opening 2023/24 BetPawa Premier League game against Heart of Lions at the Baba Yara Stadium.
Agyemang Badu who once played for Kotoko said: “First of all, Kotoko we are building, I don’t know if our supporters want to understand it because the kind of pressure Kotoko and Hearts of Oak are having, they will not understand that you are building, so you should bring these young chaps that they will give you two to three years to build a squad that can compete in Africa.
“But the reality is that, is Kotoko is building, looking at the players they have brought on board and the strategy of the coach is, he knows how to nurture young talents to become big players.
“So things maybe a bit rough from the start of the season, it’s a fact.” Agyemang Badu told Radio Gold Sports.
Asante Kotoko travel to the Dun’s Park in Bibiani as guests of Gold Stars in match day 2 on Saturday, September 23.
