‘Kotoko still look very confident despite season’s poor start’ – Prosper Ogum

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Karela United game this weekend, Prosper Narteh Ogum said, “We all know Richmond Lamptey and Justice Blay are not training. For Blay, he is on a treatment plan and he’s being very positive. We had series of meetings with him for him to go by the treatment plan and he is going by it”

“For Lamptey, he had a hamstring injury during the preseason and you know, it takes time for such injuries to go, you need a lot of rest, medication and a lot of good diet and we are doing that. Fortunately, he joined full scale training this week and even joined the main team for training this morning”

“Ofori [Julius] also had a groin issue and he’s being attended to. This morning too, Augustine Agyapong complained of a pain on the side of the right foot so we asked him to go for an x-ray. Fuseini Issahak also started training this morning and somewhere along the line we had to let him stop.”

Asante Kotoko will host Karela United in week three of the Ghana Premier League at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi this weekend…
