The ‘political players’ in the team ought to train hard to earn a place in my starting eleven – Kotoko coach Prosper Narteh Ogum fires


Asante Kotoko tactician Prosper Narteh Ogum says he has been selecting players based on their performance at the training ground and not by virtue of their
‘big name’ reputation.

According to him, most of the ‘old or senior’ players, are not getting selections for matches in the ongoing Ghana Premier League because of bad outings during their training schedules.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, November 8, Prosper Narteh Ogum stated emphatically that his team’s selection is strictly based on performances and not favoritism, as being peddled in the local media and among some supporters of the club.

“Most of the senior players are not putting in much effort at training, and that’s the reason I start the young guys who were originally not supposed to start.

“Some have turned to politicians, and they always want to get playing time by going through their friends who are journalists. But that won’t work. If you are good, prove it at the training ground for everyone to see.”

Kotoko have recorded only two victories this season, losing two and drawing five after nine matches in the top flight.

They are lying in the precarious 14th position on the league log. They will trek to play FC Samartex in their next game at Nsenkyire Park.
