GPL 2011-2012 REVIEW :ASANTE KOTOKO FC

List of scorers:

  • Ahmed Touré 6
  • Nathaniel Asamoah 5
  • Michael Akuffo 2
  •  Daniel Nii Adjei 1
  • Michael Anaba 1
  • Iddrisu Nafiu 1
  •  Fatau Mohammed 1

Players like hard-working midfielder Michael Akuffo (26), striker Nathaniel Asamoah (21), strong centre-back Mohammed Awal (23), left-back Abdul Rahman Baba, right-back Yaw Frimpong (25) and central midfielder Mohammed Yahaya (23) have all been instrumental in Kotoko’s mid-season success.

Henry Ohene Brenya (26) is somewhat of a unsong hero. Brenya, a intelligent central defender, has been ever-present so far this season.Kotoko’s interim captain married his long-time girlfriend Elizabeth in Kumasi on Christmas Day. Brenya who is also a royal of the Ashanti Kingdom was adjudged a lucky charm for the Kotoko team during pre-season games where he captained the side to win important matches .The players thus resolved to maintain the defender as their captain.

David Ofei has had a good season as compared to previous ones. Ofei was out in the cold last season but has battled his way into the first team, playing all, but two games.Just like his brother,Kofi Nti Boakye was a high-profile signing before the season but the striker has only played three matches so far. Frank Boateng ,Amos Frimpong, striker Iddrisu Nafiu (and defender Mohammed Sabato  have all struggled this season. Sabato has still not kicked a ball all season.Shocking!

It seems likely that star player Ahmed Touré (24) will leave Kotoko during the mid-season transfer window.
