Dwarfs coach backs Asante Kotoko’s title winning bid
Ebusua Dwarfs coach JE Sarpong has endorsed Asante Kotoko’s title winning credentials after his side got clobbered 3-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.
Youngster Dauda Mohammed bagged a brace and in between that Frank Sarfo Gyamfi also netted to give Kotoko the comprehensive win.
Dwarfs newly signed striker Gilbert Fiamenyo came off the bench to waste a penalty which would have been a consolation goal.
Sarpong admitted his side were second best on the afternoon and tipped Kotoko to win this season’s Premier League if they maintain their form.
“I congratulate them. If they play like this, I think Kotoko can win the league,” Sarpong said in a post-match interview.
“Kotoko did very well. In terms of intensity and transition, Kotoko was ahead.”
Asante Kotoko have now moved to fifth on the table; four points behind leaders Hearts of Oak.
