We were naive in our defeat to Ashantigold- Kotoko Coach Paa Kwesi Fabin

Published on: 09 April 2018

Head Coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has blamed his side's defeat to Ashantigold to naivity on the part of his players. 

The former Black Starlets Coach second the second defeat of the season to the league leaders and says he is disappointed with the results insisting his side were wasteful in front of goal.

Abdul Samed Ibrahim and Shafiu Mumuni scored for Ashantigold in the second half to bag all three points for the miners.

A disappointed Paa Kwesi Fabin says his players were naive and could not take their chances.

"I'm disappointed because we had the chances to kill the game," he said after the game. "But we flopped our lines," he added.

"It was naivity on our part. The first goal for instance, the marking was not good because we had assigned people to every single player according to their heights and then the guy was allowed a free header at the far post."

"The second goal for example somebody fall down and my boys were standing thinking the referee will whistle and they went on to score."

The Porcupine Warriors have lost their last two games on the road, after they were beaten by Medeama a fortnight ago.

Kumasi Asante Kotoko are now sixth on the table and will next face Ebusua Dwarfs at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
