Head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Maxwell Konadu has admitted playing in an empty stadium is affecting his side after their 1-1 draw with Liberty Professionals.
Asante Kotoko were lucky to pick a point in Kumasi after Tamimu Muntari had given the visitors the lead, a mistake between goalkeeper Shaibu Ganiyu and his defender gave Kotoko a lifeline in the game with six minutes to go.
The visitors came close to making things worse for Asante Kotoko but great goalkeeping by Kwame Baah kept them at bay and made sure the game ended in a draw.
Speaking to the media after the game, Maxwell Konadu admitted his side were lucky to pick up a point from the game because Liberty were the better team.
“To be honest playing without our fans is affecting us. That is the reason we play better in away games than when we are playing at home.
” The players feel motivated whenever they see the fans cheering them up. Though we also have to do our best but sometimes it’s not enough. We will need the fans to cheer us.”
When asked what accounted for his side’s poor performance, Maxwell Konadu answered “There are a lot of factors we can’t mention them here. But it’s true we missed some players due to injuries and some other matters. We are hoping they will be ready for our game on Wednesday.”
