Speaking in an interview with Joe Debrah on Happy 98.9FM, he said “Kotoko doesn’t know how to use Fabio Gama. They should be able to play him well in the game, if not Kwame Poku will keep running on the pitch without being effective.

“Kwame Poku style of play is just like that of Cristiano Ronaldo. He just needs to improve in some areas like his set-pieces”.

“I spoke to him yesterday and he has promised that he will score against ES Setif”

Asante Kotko will need a convincing win against Setif here in Ghana to cushion their chances of progressing to the group stage.
