Speaking with FootballMadeInGhana.com on Sunday, the former national U-17 coach observer that, fatigue could set in adding that, his job is to minimise the activities of the team before the season starts.
“The league has not started and there’s nothing you can do about it. If you’re not able to balance your team before the season starts properly, you can be playing a lot of matches and might end up over using the players even before the business time of the season” said the Kotoko coach.
“If you’ve realized, we haven’t played so [many] games so as to get the team in shape during this pre-season” he added while appealing to Kotoko fans to rally behind the club during times of adversities.
