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.

    Opoku Nti should shut the Fuck up. Bias selection of Kotoko players don’t mean they are of any better quality.

  2. K.Labaran says:

    There are two more Kotoko players who should have been selected to the squad.

  3. Billymoore says:

    Sometimes I feel we are being too trivial. Lets look at the players from Kotoko who have been invited.
    1. Richard Mpong. He was in the local team while playing for Medeama SC and actually played for the Black Stars proper before joining Kotoko. Must he be dropped because he is playing for Kotoko or he has dipped in form?
    2. Abeiku Ainooson. He was in the local stars team while playing for New Edubiase. He only retained his place though he changed club. Must he be dropped because of his association with Kotoko or purely because he isn’t playing well?
    3.Jordan Opoku. He was part of the local Black Stars team while playing for Berekum Chelsea (now FC Berekum)before returning to Kotoko. He still remains in the team because he is playing better. true or false?
    4. Yahaya Mohammed went into the team while on loan at Amidaus Professionals last season. But for injury, every fair minded person would have included him in the Black stars that went for the Nations’ cup last year. He returns to Kotoko and retains his place in the local stars. Is that also wrong? Kwabena Edusie and Michael Akuffu were invited into the local team while playing for Kotoko but before Maxwell Konadu became the coach of the local stars. And are they playing well or not? So strictly speaking the only players in the Kotoko set up who were given a chance in the local stars team by Maxwell are Isaac Amoako and Seidu Bancey. What is the man’s crime?
