Freefalling Porcupines ‘confuse’ Manso



Frimpong Manso, the coach brought in to calm the storm at Asante Kotoko has admitted the situation is getting out of hand.

The problems of the record Ghanaian champions were compounded on Saturday as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Great Olympics – keeping them winless since the decision to sack Croat Zdravko Logarusic on April 9.

In the game against Olympics, the team virtually switched off to everything he planned and wanted them to do, Manso who was left animated on the touchlines bemoaned.

“I think it’s been very difficult, to be frank with you, we had a terrible afternoon. We didn’t play well especially in the first half – nothing seemed to be working for us on the day.

“We’ve tried everything… Sometimes, you feel like it’s going to be this weekend but then, it’s getting worse,” the stop-gap coach said after the game.

Manso added: “I think I [came and] met a situation but it’s been very difficult turning things around, I must be honest because you can’t pinpoint what really is the problem now. Those we suspected, we tried to solve them but then, you get a different problem. I really don’t know, technically, we’ve done what we could but it seems not to be working…”

Kotoko will complete the first round of the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League with a home fixture against Tema Youth next weekend.
