Head coach for Asokwa Deportivo, Frimpong Manso has shared that the decision by Asante Kotoko to have four top goalkeepers for the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season did not help club.

Despite having Felix Annan, Kwame Baah, and Danlad Ibrahim, the Porcupine Warriors club still signed Razak Abalora prior to the start of the league season.

According to ex-player Frimpong Danso, it was a technical error and did not help the team in achieving its aim of winning the Ghana Premier League title

“Since the four were in a class of their own, and only one could be kept in post at a time, it created some friction among them. Some of their friends who were not happy that their friends had been sidelined also became peeved, creating unnecessary tension in the club,” the gaffer said.

Coach Frimpong Manso added, “Danlad was fortunate to have been sent out on loan to have more playing time, but for the others, their performances dipped, so eventually Kotoko were the losers.”

At the end of the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season, Asante Kotoko finished 2nd as the team lost the title to Hearts of Oak.
