Head coach of Asante Kotoko Mariano Bareto says he is not completely happy with the performance of his players despite thumping Bechem United at home.

The Porcupine Warriors inflicted a 4-0 win over the Hunters at the Obuasi Len Clay stadium in an outstanding Ghana Premier League encounter on Wednesday evening.

Goals from Abdul Ganiyu, Fabio Gama, Andy Kumi Francis and new boy Michael Vinicius were enough for the Kumasi based club to pick all three points at stake.

Speaking after the game, he said, “For me is a pleasure to be in Obuasi, we beat Zambia 2-0 here during my time with the Black Stars and today my players made four goals, is a record”

Asked if he is happy with his charges performance, he said, “Not completely but I am happy with the way they make their things. I think if we take so many chances of clear goals today it should be eight or nine goals”

“They tried today to make what we are training hardly. We don’t have time and they have to understand that football is not only, there are rules and there are discipline and they are getting use to so we will need a little time not because we have scored 4-0, now we are heroes, No”

“They made good team today, there are many things that we have to improve and I know they are trying. Look, our best striker left and from the defense we have to improve little to be better, in the midfield Mudasiru is not completely fit and we have some problems in the team because we have about six players out before I come and some of them are key players”

“We win 4-0 and of course I should be happy but only today, tomorrow we start our work” he said.

Asante Kotoko moves to third position on the table with 31 points and are two points behind leaders Great Olympics.
