“Kotoko is not any special team, Karela United will defeat them,” Kobi Mensah insists


The Pride and Passion gaffer is full of optimism that his charges will defeat the Porcupine Warriors this weekend

Karela United coach Bismark Kobi Mensah says his side will defeat Asante Kotoko in matchday five at the Cosby Awuah Memorial Park in Ainyinase on Sunday.

Kotoko have enjoyed an incredible start to the season under new coach Prosper Ogum Narteh. They have picked four wins out of four games and hope to add Karela to their victims but Mensah insists the Porcupine Warriors are not special regardless of the results they have chalked so far.

“Kotoko are not a special team so we are not afraid of them. We can beat them on Sunday, because they are really beatable,” Kobi Mensah told Domestic Sports.

“Supporters are sad but I don’t think they should because the league has not ended. We still have may matches to play and I believe that anything can happen,” he added.

Kotoko will likely miss midfielder Richmond Lamptey against Karela after he picked up an injury against Techiman Eleven Wonders last weekend unless he passes late fitness test.

Also, Mudasiru Salifu will not play part of the game following accumulated yellow cards as he is currently on three.

Karela have amassed five points after four games. They are yet to taste defeat at home after sharing the spoils with Aduana Stars and defeating Berekum Chelsea.
