Champions under pressure: Kotoko captain pleads for fans restraint

Kotoko captain, Jordan Opoku has appealed to the teeming followers of Kotoko not to be daunted by last Saturday’s 0-1 loss to arch rivals Hearts of Oak.

He said, it was understandable that, supporters of the club have been hurt by the performance of the team plus the defeat, they would lift their game in order to restore joy onto the faces of their fans.

“I understand what they are going through. We don’t like it. They also don’t like it. It’s painful. All I can say is that, they should please be calm. We will work hard to change the present state of affairs” said the highly experienced midfielder who was heckled by some of the disappointed fans after the game.

Jordan Opoku, who was substituted during the game didn’t have a good outing. He struggled to find his rhythm throughout the time he lasted on the field.

Shortly after the game, he was at the press conference room with Coach Mas-ud Didi Dramani to address the media. He explained what he thought went wrong and pleaded with the fans to exercise restraint since he and his colleagues appreciated their pain.

Minutes after Jordan Opoku left the press conference room, some resentful fans at the car park, approached him and in show of their dissatisfaction, started hurling insults at him and his teammates. The calm captain remained composed.

As more fans were drawn to the scene, some of the supporters’ leaders and General Manager, Opoku Nti rushed to the scene to whisk the player away.

He told that, he was not happy at all with the loss to Hearts but there was also the need for calm because all wasn’t lost. He said, no matter the difficulty, they would work hard to change the trend of events.
