Published on: 27 September 2022

Asante Kotoko board member Boateng Gyenfi has assured the playing body and technical team that the entire board supports them through their shaky start to the football season.

He urged them to put the defeat against Burkinabe side Kadiogo behind them and focus on the games coming up.

The Porcupine Warriors beat Kadiogo 1-0 and lost on penalties in the second leg which was played in Kumasi. The fans were not happy with the way the team played they also blasted the management for selling most of their top players.

Kotoko recently drew 1-1 with their bitter rival Accra Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League.

"We are just coming to give our assurance we are with you through thick and thin. We have lost it is football," he said.

"Kadiogo we have had that experience before It has happened before I was at the stadium in 1979 we beat them 1-0 over there they came here and we lost on penalties. It is the same thing that has happened. That time we had great players like Razak l, Opoku Afriyie and all of them, name that carry weight Kukuu Dadzie we lost"

"So it is football, we have lost don't worry too much about it. I am here to give you the motivation that you deserve I want you to know that you are not alone we are with you. As a board we haven't forgotten about you we are with you," he added.

"Don't think that you have lost everything, you still have it. Great teams like Brazil lose some matches, Liverpool, Real Madrid they all lose, so it is football let's consider it, okay... we have lost what is the way forward,"

"Forget about whatever has happened I am telling you victory will come to you. And we the board we are with you the technical team we are with you," he concluded.
