The Asante Kotoko forward Eric Kwabena Bekoe says the Reds have made the right choice by signing Brazilian Michael Vinicius to replace departed Kwame Opoku.
Kotoko sealed Vinicius signing during the second transfer for two-and-half-years and set to join his teammates for the last lap of the season.
The 27-old-year will replace Kwame who was the club’s highest scorer this season with 8 goals in all competitions.
Speaking on another Brazilian addition by Kotoko after Fabio Gama, Bekoe backed the management regarding the decision to bring in Vinicius.
“Kotoko have made the perfect signing. If a car has a problem with the engine we don’t buy a tire. Today we have watched videos of the boy (Vinicius). When Gama was coming people said all sort of things. They said he is a carpenter but for me, Fabio Gama is my toast this half-season. Football is played by footballers and it has one language.” He told Prestea-based Energy FM
“So it doesn’t matter where you are from, either Kosovo or South America; if you understand the football language that is it. People say Fabio Gama is weak and he needs to be strong. That is how he is made to play. Fabio Gama might be weak but what is his contribution on the field compared to those we think they are fit for. In Ghana when you muscle that when people think you are fit.” Bekoe added
