Underfire Asante Kotoko striker George Abege has hit back at his critics claiming ‘…even Cristiano Ronaldo needed time to start scoring for Juventus.’
The Ugandan striker insists it will take time before he finds his scoring boots for the Porcupine Warriors.
The striker has featured in three games since joining the club during the transfer window, but is yet to find the back of the net.
Speaking to the media after their Confederation Cup defeat against Kano Pillars, George Abege explained even Cristiano Ronaldo needed time before he hits the ground running at Juventus.
“It was a good game to us and a good test, I would like to appreciate the mentality of the players because going away and getting a convincing results is worthwhile.
“Automatically when Ronaldo made the move from Real Madrid to Juventus, he played a number of games before scoring his first goal.
“Goals will also be difficult to score but we keep on working and the rest will follow, if you don’t concentrate on being discipline and working towards achieving your goals, it will always be difficult”.
Abege also insisted he is more concern about the team than his personal glory.
“I can’t go and start playing my own way just because I want to score for Asante Kotoko to the expense of what the coach has instructed.
“I always say that, the team will always come first and my personally ambition will follow” He
