Former Asante Kotoko skipper, Joseph Hendricks has urged the management of club to immediately purchase prolific strikers to enforce their attacking department.
The experienced defender stresses that his former employers must look beyond Ghana and poach the quality strikers across the African continent.
The 24 times Ghana Premier League winners succumbed to 7-6 penalty shoot-out defeat to Congolese side CARA in the second leg of the ongoing CAF Confederations cup leading to the premature exit of the Kumasi lads.
And the robust defender believes the causative agent for this downfall of the porcupine warriors was due to lack of quality strikers in the team and for that matter, he is urging his former employers to find a remedy before the Ghana premier league starts on March 3, 2018.
‘’ I think Kotoko players did quite well despite their exit from the Confederations cup’’.
‘’Notwithstanding, I also believe that the current strikers available to the team are not prolific enough to help the club win laurels especially, the forthcoming Ghana premier league’’.
‘’People say there is no quality strikers in Ghana for now and I think the management should use the money and assets they promised the players prior to the start of the CAF Confederations cup to go outside the country and buy two or three quality strikers to be able to compete for the forthcoming Ghana premier league tittle’’. He told ATL FM of Cape Coast.
The Ghana premier league is scheduled to start on March 3, 2018.
