The chief Executive officer of WA All stars Oduro Nyarko in an interview on Asempa FM said it will be very difficult for Kumasi Asante Kotoko to catch with Hearts in the premier league considering their poor start in the league this season.
”Oduro Nyarko said Kotoko need to win four matches consecutive to catch up on the league table, whiles Hearts of Oak are languishing on top of table with 10 point after match day 4 and we have 30 matches to play for, Oduro Nyarko stated, with Kotoko having 2 point from 4 matches,” Oduro Nyarko stated.
The Reds have not registered a win in four games, and their smash and grab loss on Sunday to Berekum Chelsea has left fans furious.
After the 2-0 home loss in Kumasi, however, David Duncan was not contrite but took a rather tough-talking stance. “I have never resigned from any job before [and won’t resign],” Duncan said post-game to the press. “Unless you’re telling me that this is Kotoko’s worst start to any premier league season, this should not be a situation the club hasn’t been in before. We will have to all work together to try and turn things around.”
Duncan is wrong. Club historians say this is the worst start to a season for the team in about 50 years. The Porcupine Warriors lost 2-0 in their opener with WAFA before two straight draws with Ashgold (0-0) and Medeama (2-2) cranked up fan anger.
This loss in Berekum means Kotoko have only two points and are 14th. All this has made their impending Hasaacas game on Friday take on heightened significance.
A crisis meeting was held on Monday where sources say a three-match ultimatum awaits team general manager, Opoku Nti.
