Kotoko are under pressure to defence their Premier League crown following a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign.
After their opening lackluster 0-0 home draw against newly Amidaus Professionals, the champions failed again to pick maximum points when they allowed Ashantigold to draw parity in their 2-2 drawn game at Obuasi on Sunday.
The technical team, players and more especially the management team are beginning to feel the heat with many of their fans unhappy with the turn of event.
The decision to sell impressive right back Yaw Frimpng to four-time African champions TP Mazembe is seen in many quarters as ‘unwise’ and a move that could draw the fury of their demanding followers.
Henry Wellington’s position as assistant coach isn’t under threat but his team’s quest to win the crown back-to-back faces a daunting challenge.
The former King Faisal and Hasaacas trainer chose to blame the referee for their disappointing result against the miners.
“From the blast of the whistle, the assistant referee line 1 started frustrating my boys,” Wellington said
“The second goal that they equalized was a clean offside. The guy was ahead of my player and so it was an offside.
“But I will take it like that. No problem. We had a lot of chances in the second half but we failed to deliver.
“We will go back home and prepare for our next game.”
Kotoko will next tackle Heart of Lions at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi.
