Absence of supporters during home games affecting Kotoko’s performance – Maxwell Konadu


Head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Maxwell Konadu has revealed that playing behind closed doors at the Baba Yara Stadium is affecting his side’s performance.

The Porcupine Warriors have been sanctioned by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to serve a three-match home ban behind closed doors following a gun shot incident during their home defeat to Berekum Chelsea.

And Coach Konadu who drew 1-1 with Liberty Professionals at the empty stadium has stated emphatically that his side play better in away matches than home games due to the lack of supporters at Baba Yara Sports Stadium to cheer them up.

“To be honest playing without our fans is affecting us. That is the reason we play better in away games than when we are playing at home,” he said.

“Though we also have to do our best but sometimes it’s not enough. We will need the fans to cheer us,” Konadu said further.

The 47-year-old tactician added that his boys been cheered up during games feel motivated to victory.

”The players feel motivated whenever they see the fans cheering them up,” he noted

Kotoko who travel to Sogakope will come up against the West African Football Academy (WAFA) side in Match-Day 8 encounter on Wednesday.
