Akunnor cautions Kotoko players against complacency ahead of Africa
C. K Akonnor has stressed that nothing has been achieved by his side yet, despite the Porcupines dominating Inter Allies in a 3-0 win.
Amos Frimpong’s 43rd-minute penalty, Naby Keita’s 65th-minute strike, and Martin Antwi’s injury-time goal won the game for the Porcupine Warriors on Wednesday against Inter Allies at Accra Sports Stadium.
“Inter Allies are very dangerous up front”, C. K Akonnor said of his pre-match assessment of the opponent. “We saw that they have two strikers who were very composed on the ball, so we needed to keep the ball away from them.
“What we have seen today is a good sign but, we are not done yet. I hope to continue with the work,” he stressed.
The former Ghana Premier League champions will play the national U-23 side, the Black Meteors in Accra on Sunday, in a game the coach said would be the last before the team leaves for Kenya for the CAF Confederation Cup match against Kariobangi Stars, but Coach Ackonnor believes there is still some work on ball retention to be done.
“I didn’t like the way we lost the ball in the second half. We lost the ball every now and then, and that, for me, is a problem we must solve with Sunday’s game.
