Medeama coach Hans Vander Pluijm is unperturbed despite his side’s heavy 3-0 defeat to Kotoko in Ghana’s Super Cup on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors were in devasting form as they cruised to the heavy win courtesy goals from Seidu Bancey, Abeiku Ainooson and Yahaya Mohammed at the Baba Yara stadium.
For Kotoko fans, the win was a sweet revenge having lost the FA Cup title to the Mauves and Yellows last season.
With the Ghana Premier League set to kick start on Sunday, there are some Medeama fans who fear the defeat will serve as a bad omen.
But their Dutch trainer is unmoved despite their defeat and believes the team will be ready for the new soccer season.
“We made many mistakes but I don’t think losing to Kotoko will be end for Medeama,” Pluijm said
“The players failed to adhere to instructions and that cost us. But it was good exercise and we have to look at the bigger picture.
“Let’s put the defeat behind us and forge ahead. The new season is just days away and we cannot continue to think about the past.
“I am confident about our chances this season. We have to look at few things in the team and then we can take it from there.”
Medeama will open their Premier League account with atricky away tie against regional rivals Sekondi Hasaacas.
