Former Asante Kotoko striker Sarfo Gyamfi has identified the link between the midfield and the attack as one problem facing the Porcupines on the pitch this season.
Asante Kotoko’s domination in possession hides the Porcupines’ inability to break down opposition, create scoring chances and ultimately find the back of the net.
In an interview with Pure FM, Sarfo Gyamfi, affectionately called ‘the black president’ expressed worry about Kotoko midfielder’s inability to give forward passes to the attackers to find the back of the net.
“Asante Kotoko has a very good team, but the little problem facing us (Kotoko) is the connection from midfield to the attack.”
“If the strikers always have to come to the midfield for the ball to move forward then we have a problem there. Kwame Opoku always draws back to take the ball forward because he doesn’t get the needed supplies from the middle and even if the supply will come, it’s mostly from the wings which don’t help but aside from that, Kotoko has a team from defence to the attack, we must work on this, and we will come good.”
Asante Kotoko will leave the shores of Ghana to Algeria tomorrow at 4am to take on ES Setif in the CAF Confederation Cup playoff return fixture at the Stade 8 Mai 1945 in Setif.
The Porcupines will have a daunting task as they will be looking to overturn a 2-1 first-leg defeat in Accra to book a place in the group stage of the competition.
