Asante Kotoko’s forward line of Dauda Mohammed, Obed Owusu and Kwame Boateng is the best ahead of the new season, according to captain Amos Frimpong.
Dauda starred alongside Amed Toure and Owusu last season, scoring 22 goals between them but with Toure departed the club to seek greener pastures.
“Without a doubt, it’s the best trident in our recent times and I believe they’re better than what we saw last season because our coach David Duncan has evolved the team. It’s undoubtedly the best,” Frimpong told Goal.
“The quality and dept in defence and midfield is great but the current forwards speak for themselves. They’re awesome, individually and collectively. [But] I can say that the departure of Toure will not affect the club in anyway because the new players will perform better than he did.
“Even without the aforementioned players, others like Michael Yeboah and Akwasi Nti will make name for themselves this season. They can easily make the grade in many clubs and it tells you their quality,” he added.
Frimpong also had some words for the fans after losing their title defence to Ashantigold last campaign.
“The supporters should keep calm because everything will be okay this season. What we need from them is to follow and cheer us wherever we will be heading to and we’ll make them loud and proud.”
Kotoko will open their season with a trip to Sogakope to lock horns with WAFA on February 21, a venue they lost in previous season.
They will then host defending champions Ashantigold in the Asante-derby before Medeama’s visit on Match day three.
