Asante Kotoko’s interim boss, Abdul Gazale, has acknowledged that his team’s attackers are lacking the cutting edge in front of goal and has taken it upon himself to help them improve their finishing.
Gazale took over the team a few days ago following the departure of Burkinabe trainer Seydou Zerbo and has already identified finishing as one of the areas that the team needs to improve on if they want to remain contenders for the title.
In their first game under Gazale’s leadership, the team secured a 1-1 draw against Legon Cities at the El Wak Stadium, despite taking an early lead. The youth coach believes that his team had enough chances to win the game, but they failed to do so because their attackers were not clinical enough in front of goal.
“We should have won by 3-1 but unfortunately, we were unable to convert our chances which is a problem and we are going to work on it.
“For the past two days that’s what we have been working on, how to finish and it was evidently poor in how we played. We are going to work on the final touches in order to convert our chances from tomorrow,” Gazale said after the game.
Kotoko will welcome Real Tamale United (RTU) at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday as they continue their search for a win in three games.
