Interim head coach for Asante Kotoko, Michael Osei has described his side’s one nil loss to New Edubiase as a shocking defeat.
The Porcupine Warriors had under the former Edubiase assistant coach won all their two Premier League games plus an MTN FA Cup game and were looking forward to their consecutive win of the season.
A 21st minute goal from Prince Antwi was all that the ‘Yenko Nkoaa’ lads needed to temporarily move out of the relegation zone with 9 points on Saturday night.
Coach Michael Osei during the post match presser described the defeat as shocking insisting his side deserved at least a point in the game.
“I think we played a good game but very unfortunate that we couldn’t even get one point, it’s a very shocking defeat for us”.
He blamed a lapse in concentration for the goal his side conceded saying:
“I think it was lack of concentration in our central defense that’s why we conceded that goal and we couldn’t also take our chances”.
“It’s [defeat] part of the game. It happens all the time because we all know football is a very strange game. We didn’t expect that we will lose such a game but we have to live on and then make sure we correct our mistakes and move on to the next game“, he added.
Kotoko will next travel to the Accra Sports Stadium to face fiercest rivals Accra Hearts of Oak with New Edubiase hosting Berekum Chelsea at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium on Match day 10 of the Ghana Premier League.
