The Porcupine Warriors boss has shed light on why the forward is not getting playing time amid injuries to other players
Asante Kotoko coach Prosper Ogum Narteh has insisted that forward Stephen Amankona will not play for the club until he improves his performance.
The 23-year-old joined Kotoko from Berekum Chelsea at the start of the season with a lot of expectations but he has surprisingly falling down in the pecking order.
Despite injuries to Dickson Afoakwa, Clinton Opoku and Isaac Oppong, Amankona is still struggling with game time as Ogum rather prefers to use makeshift players.
Kotoko pipped King Faisal 1-0 in the Kumasi derby thanks to Imoro Ibrahim’s free-kick to help them return to winning ways.
Kotoko lead the log with 49 points, ten points above Aduana Stars who sit in second place. They will face bitter rivals Hearts of Oak next weekend at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
