Former head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Steve Pollack has advised Charles Kwablan Akonnor to spend ultimate time to solve the defensive blender in the team ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup clash against Nkana FC.
According to Pollack, Kotoko need to stop conceding more goals in their subsequent matches to enable them qualify to the next stage of the competition.
“CK Akunnor should tirelessly work the defense wholeheartedly because it could cost them going forward in the competition”
He continued that lack of competitive matches is also a contributory factor to Asante Kotoko’s inconsistent form in their Africa campaign.
“Asante Kotoko not getting much matches to play has also contributed to their inconsistent form in the Africa competition”
Pollack however concluded that Kotoko will beat Nkana FC in Kumasi only if the supporters troop to the stadium in their numbers to cheer the team up.
“They have got the best supporters in Ghana so hopefully when most of them troop into the stadium and cheers them up, definitely victory would be assured.
Pollack was at the helm of affairs when the Porcupines were eliminated via penalty shootouts by CARA Brazaville during the preliminary stages of the 2017/18 CAF Confederation Cup.
