Former Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe has leapt to the defense of embattled striker Songne Yacouba.
Yacouba is on a goal drought as he has failed to score in seven competitive games for the Porcupine Warriors.
The Burkinabe hitman was wasteful in his side’s 2-1 victory against ZESCO United in the CAF Confederation Cup on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
According to Bekoe, Yacouba needs help upfront as he is not a natural goal scorer but rather a decoy.
“Sogne Yacouba’s style of play is similar to that of Kwabena Yaro. Such a player needs a goalscorer who will play alongside with him either than that the supporters will always be shouting oh ah because Sogne Yacouba is not a goal scorer but a decoy, he needs help upfront,” he told Oyerepa FM.
Yacouba’s goal drought has raised a lot of concerns among the fans despite his immense contribution to the team.
He has registered five assists in the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup for the team.
