Asante Kotoko head coach, Prosper Narteh, has praised goalkeeper Razak Abalora for his heroics in the Reds win over Bibiani Gold Stars.
Youngster Isaac Oppong scored the only goal to decide the match for Kotoko in the away fixture. But, Abalora was in the spotlight for denying the hosts on numerous occasions.
Narteh, in the post-match presser, heaped praises on the Black Stars goalie for a stunning display at the Dun’s Park.
“As for Razak[Abalora], that’s why he is part of the team. That’s his responsibility. When the last line of defence is beaten, it is his responsibility to keep the team in the game and that’s exactly what he did both in the first half and in the second half.”
“And kudos to him, I like his confidence, I like his bravery and I like his judgement and anticipation.”
“He is great, he is a wonderful goalkeeper,” Prosper Narteh said of Razak Abalora.
Asante Kotoko have now recorded three consecutive wins in their first three league games for the first time since 2014 when they last won the league.
Meanwhile, midfielder Mudasiru Salifu has expressed satisfaction in his side’s hard-fought win against Bibiani Gold Stars on matchday 3 of the Ghana Premier League.
Isaac Oppong’s second half curler earned the Porcupine Warriors all three points, as they maintained their hundred percent start to the season.
Salisu who played an important role in the heart of midfielder urged his teammates to keep going with thirty-one matches remaining.
“Away win, plus three points. Long way to go . We keep on fighting,” wrote the midfielder on Twitter.
