Manso: I’m not a failure

Deputy Coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Frimpong Manso has quelled the notion that he is a failure after failing to win a single game as an interim coach of the side.

Following the sacking of Zdravko Lugarusic, the Porcupine Warriors turned to Frimpong Manso to end their dwindling season having gone four games without a win under the Croat.

However, Manso woefully failed to bring glory to the side in the five games he presided over which prompted the club hierarchy to appoint Berekum Chelsea Technical Director, Steve Polack to steer affairs of the team in the second half of the season.

Nevertheless, Manso insists he’s not a failure as he tried his best to turn the fortunes around but it did not go as planned.

“When I came the problem was there but I tried so you can’t use just four, five matches to judge me as a failure and will just not accept it”, he told Starr Sports.

Kotoko finished the first half of the league by placing 7th with 21 points.

In another development, AshantiGold coach, Charles Akunnor says management of the club is part of the cause of their ailing campaign in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.

The 43-year-old was handed the reins of the club to halt their dwindling fortunes this season.

Akunnor has so far failed with the task assigned to him after winning just one out of the five games under his tutelage.

Some fans of the club have accused CEO Kudjoe Fianoo for the current woes of the club but Akunnor who admits it is difficult for them to avoid the drop, said with determination and hard work they can escape relegation.

“We have a long way to go and I have identified certain things and not only players, but management must also take the flak for the club’s abysmal performance this first round.”-Ghanasoccernet
