Asante Kotoko will need a Sports psychologist ahead of CARA clash

Published on: 13 February 2018

Director General of the National Sports Authority Hon. Robert Sarfo Mensah wants Asante Kotoko to get a sports psychologist for their return encounter against CARA Club in Congo.

Kotoko will go into the return encounter with lots at stake- having won the first leg 1-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

Speaking to Kumasi-base radio station Oyerepa FM 100.7, Hon. Sarfo Mensah called on the management of the Porcupine Warriors to travel with a sports psychologist ahead of their return leg encounter in Congo to help the playing body to overcome the intimidation they will receive at the hands of the host’s supporters.

"Yes the fans of Kotoko really showed love for their club and the players also played their best games since they joined Kotoko but the technical team has more work to do, they should hire a psychologist to work on the players so they eliminate the assertion of juju from their minds and the tendency of officiating biaseness as well as some fear these Congolese teams will try to put in them" the former legislator suggested.

The crunch return encounter is set to come off in a fortnight time in Congo.
