Former Kotoko star Kwasi Appiah entreats club not to be complacent after flying start to campaign

Published on: 23 November 2021

Former Asante Kotoko star James Kwasi Appiah has called on the club to guide against complacency after a good start to the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League campaign.

The Porcupine Warriors has a 100 percent record winning their first four games.

They currently sit top of the league standings with 12 points after 4 matches into the domestic top-flight.

Speaking to Akoma FM at the launch of the club’s partnership deal with the National Lottery Authority (NLA), the former Black Stars coach expressed delight with the performance of his former employers but called on the team not to be complacent.

“For now, they’re doing very well,” the former left-back said.

“But they should not be swollen-headed. They need to concentrate and make sure they take it game after game and should never think we’ve won four games, so that’s the end of it.

“Once complacency sets in, then it will be a problem for the team. And they also know that each team they face will be coming out in full force because now they’re leading the league table, and automatically all the teams will be eyeing them, giving them tough games.

“So, the most important thing is to be focused and play according to the tactical instructions of the coach” he said.
