HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Kotoko need their own stadium to succeed – Duncan

Under-fire Asante Kotoko coach, David Duncan is advocating for a bonafide stadium after his side suffered their latest defeat on the road in the ongoing Ghana Premier League. 

The Porcupine Warriors lost their third in six games of the 2015/16 campaign – all away matches Sunday.

The club was defeated by Aduana Stars courtesy a strike from Yahaya Mohammed who happens to be a former player of the club at the Agyemang Badu Park.

Venting his disappointment after a game in which his side played above themselves yet lost, the Kotoko coach has suggested perhaps the porcupine warriors might have to get their own stadium to ensure they always secure all points at home like their hosts enjoyed on the day.

“The performance of the team was good but I think if we have our own stadium like they [Aduana] do, Kotoko’s fortunes would change drastically,” Duncan said.

“I do not think that any team can beat Kotoko if we also had a stadium like they do here… In that case, we would win every home game,” he added.

A reporter quipped: ‘coach why are you saying that?’

“Because you saw how the game went,” Duncan responded to the reporter suggesting Aduana enjoyed undue advantage during the game.

“I’m saying if Kotoko have their own stadium like it is here, I think that Kotoko will win league as long as they want to,” Duncan repeated.

As to whether the scoreline was a true reflection of the game, the ex-Hearts of Oak coach mentioned: “No, it wasn’t!

Duncan continued: “[My team’s performance] was great and fantastic. I haven’t seen anything like this before from the Kotoko players ever since I took over the job.”

Kotoko will in their next league game host Liberty Professionals who on match day 6 trashed defending champions Ashgold 5-1 at the Carl Reindorf Park.

Kotoko lies 16th on the league log with just five (5) points from a possible eighteen (18).
