Former Ghanaian international Ibrahim Sunday claims the Porcupines are struggling due to instability in the team and expectations of instant results.
The Ghana Premier League winners champions have worked with seven coaches in the last four seasons and the ongoing saga suggests that current boss Prosper Narteh Ogum could leave the club.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko has lost its duopoly and is struggling to make the sort of impact it used to make in Africa.
Sunday, who played for the Kumasi-based based club between 1966 and 1975 says the club must have a long-term planning and stop expecting instant results to solve their problems.
Asked about what will bring happiness to Kotoko again, he answered “Stability.”
“They always change players and coaches. This will not bring stability. In football, we have short-term and long-term planning. They need long-term term planning. If they do it gradually for two-three years they can revive things.
“For Kotoko and Hearts they always want to win but it is not all the day’s things will go through. Barcelona today is not like Barcelona in the past but they are planning and reviving things gradually. In one or two years they will come up again but we don’t want to do the same.
“We always expect instant results. You have to look at the performance of your players before expecting a good result. If they are not at their peak then you should plan. They rush too much,” Sunday told Ghanasportspage.com.
