I’m ready to scout for Kotoko – former player

Former captain of Kumasi Asante Kototo, Joseph Hendricks has stated that he is very much ready to scout players for the Porcupine Warriors, if the need arises.

The former defender believes both Kotoko and Hearts of Oak are recently wasting too much money on recruitment because they lack scouts.

“These two clubs are wasting so much funds because of bad scouting. Gone are the days, Kotoko and Hearts would not waste GHC 120,000 on a defender, because they have trust in the one who is at that position. For instance, there was no better right back than Amankwah Mireku so Hearts of Oak would not want to replace him with any expensive player and that money would be used for another purpose.

“But recently, Kotoko have been signing players for one position in three consecutive seasons. This does not help the progress of club. There should be consistency and trust in the team,” Hendricks told journalists.

“With my scouting expertise, I only need support from the management and the supporters. I can travel all over the country for talent hunt. Kotoko don’t need to spend so much on buying players. That has been the problem of the club, with my support the club can reduce the huge sum of money,” he added

The former kotoko player joined the club from Sekondi Eleven Wise in the 1999/2000 league season.
