Michael Osei v Hearts

Kotoko: Osei might get ‘help’

Operations manager of Asante Kotoko, George Kennedy, says the club could consider beefing up their technical team.

The administrator was speaking in the wake of the Porcupine Warriors’ 1-1 draw with Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Kotoko shot themselves into the lead through Kwame Boateng after 17 minutes, but the Phobians equalized six minutes into the second half through enterprising forward Patrick Razak.

“We will take it like that. It was a balanced game so we thank God we have at least one point. We were coming into this game after a 4-1 defeat and it wasn’t easy. We had to psyche the players up and we thank God that we drew 1-1 the game and we are comfortable with the results,” George Kennedy told LUV Fm’s Kofi Asare.

“We will discuss that one [possibility of strengthening the technical team]. We have to meet at a technical meeting and when it is resolved that a technical director should be brought in to help him, we will do that.”

Osei has so far led the club 15 times in the topflight since former coach David Duncan was asked to “step aside” after matchday six, following a disappointing start to the campaign.

We didn’t want to incur more cost when we asked the substantive coach to step aside so we wanted him to act. For now I think we have to maybe help him with a technical director till the end of the season then we know what to do next” he concluded.

Kotoko, currently fourth on the log and five points behind leaders Hearts, play away to New Edubiase on matchday 22 on Wednesday.
