Former Asante Kotoko midfielder, Godwin Ablordey has taken a swipe at the current players of the club, claiming none of them would have gotten a place in the team during their playing days.
According to retired Ghanaian footballer, the club currently lacks the quality of players they used to have in the past, such as Stephen Oduro and Jordan, among others.
He further blamed the lack of quality players in the Ghana Premier League, saying that most players in other clubs are average, unlike during their time when most players were in the senior national teams.
“They (Kotoko) have no special quality players like they used to have in the past such as Stephen Oduro, Jordan, and the rest.
“I won’t blame the current management for recruiting these average players because the league itself lacks quality. Most of the players playing in the other clubs are average ones unlike during our time when most of the players were in the senior national teams”
“If Kotoko really wants to recruit quality, they need to scout outside the shores of Ghana and that is costly. The fans however must support the team financially by attending matches so management can recruit the kind of quality they (supporters) are craving for”
“I’m sorry to say this, but none of the current Kotoko crop of players would have gotten a place in our team during our playing days,” Ablordey stated during an interview with Akoma FM.
