Asante Kotoko head coach Prosper Ogum Narteh has observed some footballers are also into active partisan politics, though there is nothing wrong with it.
According to the Kotoko head coach, he has a list of prayers clandestinely members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“I tell them, most of you are politicians I know, but I would rather not mind you. Players stay in Kotoko and after one or two seasons they turn politicians”, he revealed, accusing some of his players of being “politicians” who are sabotaging him and trying to earn a place in the team by using the media to gain sympathy.
“They use the media to fight for positions to play, but as a coach, you will never get me because I am so strong-minded that it’s not what people say that I follow. If what you are saying is indeed the right thing, their moral values will force me to implement it,” the coach said at a press conference held by the club.
The Porcupine Warriors have had a tough start to the season, with the team having managed just 10 points out of a possible 27. Kotoko has 10 points, 2 wins, 3 defeats, and 4 draws in 9 games.
Kotoko who are 14th on the league log, suffered their second consecutive defeat to Dreams FC a fortnight after losing to Nsoatreman FC.
