‘Kotoko miss Baba Yara Sports Stadium,’ – Maxwell Konadu blames draw with Eleven Wonders on neutral ground


The Porcupine Warriors boss suggests his charges could have done better against Wonders if they played in their favourite home ground

Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu has already sent a signal that he is unhappy playing his home games at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Despite going in front thanks to Kwame Poku’s debut goal, the Porcupine Warriors failed to record a win on opening day of Ghana Premier League after 1-1 stalemate with debutants Techiman Eleven Wonders on Sunday.

Substitute Prince Okraku snatched a late equaliser to share the spoils.

“The playing of our home games away from home [Baba Yara Sports Stadium] started from last season and it hasn’t been helping us,” Konadu iinsisted after the game. 

“It’s always better to be in front of your home fans, playing in Kumasi means a lot to the team than having your games on a neutral ground.

“However, this is the first league match and we wanted to secure the three points but unfortunately it couldn’t happen. So we’ll still work hard in the subsequent games. Its just the first match.”

“The team is still gelling together after the pre-season and I believe that as time goes on, the team will become better than we did against Eleven Wonders,” he added.

 Next on Kotoko’s roaster is an away trip to Golden City Park in Berekum next weekend to lock horns with Berekum Chelsea who also picked an away draw against Legon Cities FC.
