Asante Kotoko have given their teeming fans something good to chew on after a hundred percent start to the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League.
The Porcupine Warriors knicked a goal past Bibiani Gold Stars in week three to record three straight wins. Latest sensation, Isaac Oppong saved the day for the nine time Ghana FA Cup winners with a perfectly curled goal on 55th minute at the Dun’s Park in Bibiani on Friday. Head coach, Prosper Narteh says the win will boost the club’s confidence in the subsequent games. The former West Africa Football Academy coach was not happy with the nature of the pitch which he believes did not allow them play their game.
“The victory is good for our confidence. If you look at the intensity of the game, they were just kicking and following. “They were very strong in the air, the pitch was not conducive for our usual passing and moving game. “We were finding it difficult to receive the balls and pass well. “But then irrespective of that, we did the needful by scoring.” Prosper Narteh Ogum said.
Prosper Narteh was appointed Kotoko coach on a 2-year deal to replace Mariano Baretto who left the club after a mutual termination of his contract. Kotoko now have a hundred percent record with three opening wins coming against Dreams FC [3-1] in the first week and a 2-0 win over Bechem United in the second week. The two time CAF Champions League winners return home for their week four clash against last season’s strugglers, Techiman Eleven Wonders on Friday, November 19.
