Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, who serves as the Head Coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, has appealed for patience from the fans and supporters of the club as they face difficulties in the initial stages of the 2023-24 Betpawa Premier League season.
Asante Kotoko’s recent match ended in another frustrating draw, as they played out a 1-1 result against Karela United. This marks the third consecutive game in which the Porcupine Warriors have failed to secure a victory.
In his post-match remarks, Dr. Ogum emphasized the significant impact of his team’s lack of efficiency in front of the goal on their current struggles. He also highlighted the relative youth and inexperience of his players, emphasizing that transitioning from division two to the Premier League requires time and patience.
“It’s a matter of inexperience,” Dr. Ogum explained. “The players are still developing and gaining maturity in the game. Moving from the lower divisions to the Premier League is a significant step, and it will naturally take some time for them to adapt and become confident at this level. As their coach, it is my responsibility to nurture that confidence within them. With time and consistent effort, I believe they will improve and perform better.”
Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum‘s message is clear: the young players on the team are in a learning phase, and it’s important for everyone involved to be patient and allow them the time they need to grow and excel in the demanding environment of the Premier League.
