Kotoko chief Opoku Nti defends his players quality over CHAN call-ups
Interim Asante Kotoko Chairman Opoku Nti has insisted all eight Kotoko players included in Ghana’s final CHAN squad are worth their places.
Ghana CHAN head coach Maxwell Konadu has come in for public criticisms from mainly Hearts of Oak fans for picking majority of his squad from the Ghanaian champions – a club he coach three seasons ago.
But Chairman of the Porcupine Warriors, Opoku Nti insists his players are worth their places in the team.
“8 players from Kotoko only mean our players are the best on the local scene and are in a world of their own which cannot currently be matched by any team,” he said.
Rather than criticize Coach Konadu we must appreciate him better for not being bias but choosing only the best for the CHAN team.”
Kotoko’s bitter-rivals – Hearts of Oak have only one player selected for the January tournament despite being statistically the best club in the 2013 calender.
