Home pressure is killing us - Kotoko goalkeeper Soulama

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye says heightened pressure from the fans is responsible for the side’s poor home record.

The champions have won only twice from the six games played so far at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium this season.

Kotoko have however churned out more assertive displays on their travels despite their inability to pick up wins with superior ball possession and a lions share of the chances created.

And goalkeeper Soulama says the pressure playing before an expectant home crowd is telling on the team’s performance.

“At Baba Yara Stadium there is a lot of pressure on us,” he told Kumasi-based Angel FM.

“The home pressure is too much but when we are away we can play our normal game better.

“I always say at Baba Yara Stadium, the pressure on the team to perform is just too much.

“In away matches, we are free and can play our normal game but at home, we have to win by force to make the supporters happy.”

Kotoko currently lie outside the top four with 19 points – three less than leaders Aduana Stars after eleven rounds of games.

    I have now realised, why players from south and central American countries turn to perform better in europe than our brothers from Africa. How can you perform in europe when you can’t even play in front of an expectant crowd in kumasi. twia ka yawa players.

  3. henry says:

    Yes the pressure is too much.In Europe you’ll see and hear the home fans are singing and edging their teams on,especially when they’re down.In Ghana what do we see,insults and throwing objects at players.Soulama was right,let back them.
