Assistant coach of the Black Stars, Ibrahim Tanko has called on Asante Kotoko coach, CK Akonnor to work on his top striker, Songne Yacouba.
The Burkinabe forward is struggling in front of goals after seven competitive matches played in the ongoing CAF Confederations Cup.
However, the 26-year-old has provided five assist in the competition.
However, Tanko believes it is normal in football for a striker to experience a goal drought as happening to Yacouba now but suggested that Coach Akonnor should have time and assist the striker to rediscover his scoring boots.
“Akonnor is a former player so he understands. He will surely work on Yacouba to help him score again,” he told Nhyira FM.
Coach Ibrahim Tanko also praised Kotoko’s goalkeeper, Felix Annan, for his wonderful display against Zesco United.
Annan saved a penalty and also made some mind-blowing saves to help Kokoto beat Zesco 2-1 in Kumasi.
“Felix Annan is doing well and we shall invite him into Black Stars if he performs more than the other goalkeepers,” he said.
Kotoko will be hosted by Nkana FC in the third group game on Sunday in Zambia.
