Don’t pressure Yacouba to score goals – Maxwell Konadu
Assistant coach of the Black Stars, Maxwell Konadu has called on the supporters of Asante Kotoko to stop calling on Songne Yacouba to start firing for the club.
The Burkinabe forward is yet to find the back of the net in the group stage of the CAF Confederations Cup.
Yacouba, however, failed to score in the preliminary round of the of the competition but assisted twice on Wednesday as Kotoko beat Zesco United on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
“He [Songne Yacouba] is a great player but the unfortunate thing is that he is not scoring,” he told the press.
“I will urge the Kotoko supporters not to pressure him to score because he has been assisting his players to score and that is the important thing.
“The fact that he is not scoring does not make him a bad player. The team is playing well but he will need time to start scoring,” he added.
The Ghana Premier League side will play Nkana FC in the third group game on next week Sunday.
