Ghanaian midfielder Edwin Gyimah has backed his compatriot James Kotei to remain calm and concentrate at Kaizer Chiefs despite failure to break into the first team.

Since joining the Soweto giants at the start of the season, Kotei has not featured in any official game for Amakhosi.

Gyimah, who recently joined Black Leopards, knows all about playing for a big club in South Africa as he previously featured for Orlando Pirates.

In quotes published on KickOff, Gyimah said about his compatriot: "He needs to stay focused. The demands (of playing for big teams) are always high. He knows and understands

"He just needs to stay cool, calm and concentrate. He is a good player. His time will come to prove to Chiefs and South African football fans what he is capable of.

"The moment you sign for big teams like Pirates, Chiefs, SuperSport and Sundowns you feel pressure because of the brand associated with those clubs and the high expectations from fans.

"It's tough but he must enjoy it. To sign for a team like Chiefs shows he is a big player and I am confident that he is managing the situation very well. His time will come."
