Medeama coach Fosu advises Kotoko supporters why to lower expectations in Prosper Ogum’s first season


The Yellow and Mauve boss has added his voice on why the Porcupine Warriors fraternity should lower their expectations ahead of the new season

Medeama coach Ignatius Osei-Fosu has advised Asante Kotoko supporters to lower their expectations ahead of the start of the 201/22 Ghana Premier League season.

According, the former Techiman Eleven Wonders boss, Kotoko may struggle under new coach Prosper Ogum Narteh since he joined the club few weeks ago and has to get enough time to blend the old and new players.

Kotoko offloaded twelve players including captain Felix Annan and assistant captain Emmanuel Gyamfi as well as Augustine Okrah, Wahab Adams, Habib Mohammed and Latif Anabila.

As a result, they have signed thirteen players so far in their bid to rebuild the team for future success.

“The first thing I will say to Kotoko supporters is to lower their expectations,” Fosu said.

“The team has a new coach, more of a new technical direction and you have added about 15 new players so it will not be like a team that has been there for sometime.

“When they start and things don’t go as expected, let the fans not be angry because is part of the deal that football is not magic.

“Football is played with principles, it is also a gradual process. I trust Prosper Narteh, the process will come,” he added.

Asante Kotoko are currently in United Arab Emirates for a pre-season tour and they lost their first game against a third-tier side Al Hilal United on Thursday.

They are expected to play other friendly games before they arrive in Ghana on October 22 to wrap up their fine tuning for the new season.

Kotoko will open their season’s campaign with an away trip to Dawu to face Dreams FC at the Theater of Dreams on October 29 before they host Bechem United at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
