Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko scout, Ebenezer Sefa, has questioned the inconsistency with Michael Osei’s team selection as Kumasi Asante Kotoko head coach.
Sefa, a Technical Director himself and a television pundit for Super Sports, is worried and claims Kotoko former player, Osei, tinkers too much with the side and that does not instill confidence in the players.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Radio Gold, Sefa said; “my problem with Kotoko this season is the inconsistency with team selection for matches.
“Since the club asked David Duncan to step aside and Michael Osei took over, virtually all the 30 registered players have played – yes, there are injuries and suspensions as well, I understand.
“When Michael took over, there was a bit of consistency with player selections in the first five or six games, but same can’t be said of his team in their last four games and, this doesn’t augur well for the good of the team.
“A very good team has consistency from the first choice goalkeeper to the four defensive men and the two holding midfielders. Basically, you don’t change them, unless suspension or an injury forces your hands as a coach to do so.
“You can fumble around with the offensive players and that is why for me, in terms of consistency, I think there is a problem with the Kotoko team. Besides that, they are a very good team who play very good football.”
