Be Dedicated to the Team and Avoid Playing With A Lazy Attitude – Wilberforce Mfum tells Asante Kotoko Players

Ghlagatin 3 weeks ago 0

Their slump this season has been palpable. A section of the club’s fans has called for the head of the manager, but for club legend, Wilberforce Mfum, the blame should be laid on the doorsteps of the players.

He believes the players are not dedicated to the club enough, suggesting that some of them play with a “lazy attitude.”

Speaking in an interview with Akoma FM, the legend of Asante Kotoko did not hold back on his frustration at what is happening at the club at the moment, and even suggested that the players need to be beaten up by the fans for them to know their worth.

In four outings in the Ghana Premier League, since defeating Bibiani Gold Stars on March 1, the Porcupine Warriors have not won, losing all four of them to Accra Lions, Karela United, Aduana Stars, and Nations FC.

It has been fourteen years since Asante Kotoko lost four matches in a row, and according to Wilberforce Mfum, it is not acceptable.

The poor form means that Kotoko have picked up just 32 points in 23 games in the Ghana Premier League.

They are now 10 points adrift of the top spot and are also out of the MTN FA Cup this season after being kicked out by Karela United.

Wilberforce Mfum believes that part of the reason for these poor performances is the fact that some of the players are not dedicated enough.

To him, some players play with a lazy attitude, and his advice to them is that they have to be dedicated and stop playing with a lazy attitude.

“The only advice I have for the players is that before wearing Kotoko’s jersey, they must be dedicated and have the team at heart, always play for the team with full commitment, and not with lazy attitude,” Wilberforce Mfum said on Akoma FM.

Losing four matches in a row is not what a club like Asante Kotoko is known for, and fans are not happy.

After the loss against Nations FC, fans vented their anger at the match officials, but Wilberforce Mfum believes that the fans should have beaten the Asante Kotoko players instead.

To him, if they have ever been beaten before, they will not be putting up such lazy performances as he puts it.

“I think the players have never been beaten before, they should have been beaten by the fans after losing streak so they understand their worth, he said, asking, “How can you be bought with a large sum of money and then given such a poor performance?”

Asante Kotoko’s next match is a big one as they come up against Bechem United at Nana Fosu Geabour Park in Bechem.

Prosper Ogum, the coach of the club is under pressure to turn things around.

Recent reports suggested that he had been given a few matches to turn things around, where failure to pick up points from those games would mean an exit from the club.

The Interim Management Committee (IMC) of the club refuted those reports, saying that they believe in their man to turn things around and have no intention of sacking him any time soon.
