Every word said by Asante Kotoko head coach , Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum , following the Asante Kotoko 1 Bechem United 1 Ghana Premier League game on Sunday.
Peter Acquah Amidu scored a fantastic goal in the 9th minute to put Kotoko ahead before Augustine Okrah , a former Porcupine player , netted with a bullet header in the second half to equalize for the Hunters.
Kotoko boss Dr. Ogum provided an immediate reaction at full time :
“I think we played we played well in the first half , we created a lot of chances which we should have ended the game in the first half but we didn’t take our chances. They came back in the second half , got a goal and that changed the complexity of the game but I am okay”
“I think the issue was their equalizer , the goal that they scored , I think that gave them some energy. It was a psychological goal , it gave them some energy. We needed to be mentally stronger to forge ahead to create the chances and score.”
“For the intensity I think we were able to match with the intensity of the game. It was just the goal that I think disturbed the players and that is why they behaved the way they behaved “
“I think he is a young chap and I would like to congratulate him. He is good. As a wing striker or as a wing player one of the key things there is to make sure that you score and that is what I have been telling him all the time. So , I mean it’s good for his confidence , it’s good for his energy and he needs to keep it up “
