Asante Kotoko will return to their fortress for the 2021/22 domestic football season after the completion of renovation by the government of Ghana. The Porcupine Warriors had been away from their home ground since February 2020 due to the renovation exercise and a return home means fans will have a feel of their beloved club. David Obeng Nyarko is therefore urging the teeming fans to create a tensed atmosphere for the away teams.
"We are expecting our fans to be in the stadium but they shouldn't come as spectators. They should create a very tough atmosphere which no club will come to Baba Yara and be comfortable,” Obeng Nyarko told OTEC FM. "They (Fans) should come to the stadium to support, cheer and encourage the boys till the final whistle. They shouldn't come with the motive to insult or submit a hash treatment on a player. "We will continue to need the prayers and love they have for us. Let's create an atmosphere that will help us grab all the maximum points that will make our season successful.” He Concluded
Asante Kotoko have completed their overseas pre-season in Dubai where they engaged in three friendly games to toughen the squad ahead of the start of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season. The record Ghana Premier League holders lost 1-0 to Dubai based second tier club, Al Hilal in their first pre-season exercise before drawing 1-1 with Liwa FC. The Porcupine Warriors were scheduled to play Atletico Arabia FC on Tuesday but the game was called off at the eleventh hour due to what was termed as “technical reasons.” A final friendly exercise against LaLiga Academy HPC ended 1-1 to wrap up their pre-season tour of the United Arab Emirates.
The Porcupine Warriors went the whole of last season without a trophy and will return to open their next season Ghana Premier League campaign against Dreams FC at the Dawu Park. Asante will also want to avoid the mistakes to last season where they lost the league title, the MTN FA Cup title to arch rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak. They recently appointed former West Africa Football Academy Coach, Prosper Narteh Ogum as the head coach of the club ahead of next season.
