Special Competition: Liberty coach Reginald Asante critical of team performance despite win

Liberty Professionals coach Reginald Asante is not over the moon despite his side’s victory against Dreams FC on matchday six of the Special Competition at the Carl Reindorf Park on Sunday.

Captain Simon Zibo scored the only goal in a fiercely contested game as the Scientific Soccer lads edged the Dawu-based outfit but their manager insists there is plenty room for improvement.

Coach Asante had to review his game plan when he lost two players to injury during the warm-up session prior to the game.

He commended the home fans for their support and gave them credit for the win.

“It was a tough game. There was a problem right from the start of the warm-up. Our two regular players Elvis Kyei Baffour and Emmanuel Addo got injured and we had to change tactics,” Asante said after the game.

“We gave some of the guys opportunities to play so that we can see their level. Dreams played well in the second half but we dominated in the first half. Aside from that, we won because we had the home support.”

The victory meant that Asante’s men have moved to second place in the Zone B table with 10 points.

Liberty will next face high flying Karela United in the final game of the first round.
