Deputy Communications Manager of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Alhaji Ali Maradona says the Reds are not favourites for the league title as many have perceived.

The pre-season performance of the Fabulous lads has been very convincing, compelling many to believe that they are favourites for the upcoming league.

But Alhaji Ali Maradona disagrees.

“It is too early to make those assertions. The team is taking shape but we are not favourites for the league,” Maradona told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“Such calls will put pressure on the team to perform and that can affect their aim during the league. For us, we are still building a team.”

Asante Kotoko’s triumph over AshantiGold in the SWAG Cup, climaxing it with the lifting the trophy in the G6 tournament has raised the hopes of the fans ahead of the season.

The Ghana FA has announced that the 2015/16 Premier League season will kick off on the 20th of February.
