Assistant coach Michael Osei has vowed Kotoko will cope this season without their quartet.

The Porcupine Warriors have sold captain Michael Akuffo and strikers Yusif Aziz and Seidu Bancey to North African clubs while Issah Yakubu has ruled out contract extension.

There are fears the exit of the key players will affect their domestic and continental chances this term but assistant coach Michael Osei is adamant they will survive without them.

“Kotoko is a club which should be able to attract quality players. We have seen players come and leave and yet we survive,”he said

“This is not going to be different. Admittedly it’s not going to be easy but we can find replacements.

“They are fine players who have contributed their quota and must now look elsewhere.

“We have to accept that and move on. Let’s focus on the players we have and those we intend bringing in.”

Kotoko fans are growing apprehensive over the lack of activity in the transfer market but officials claim they have landed four of their six targets.
