WAFA coach Klaus Rasmussen has touted Asante Kotoko as one of the favourites to clinch this year’s Ghana Premier League title following their 1-1 draw in the opening round of the campaign in Sogakofe.
The Academy Boys dominated the premier league giants but failed to make it count as striker Yakubu Mohammed cancelled out Aminu Mohammed’s 3rd minute strike to end the match in a stalemate.
Yakubu’s goal was the Porcupine Warriors’ first goal at the Sogakofe Red Bull Arena but WAFA Coach Rasmussen believed they did enough to pick the maximum points, though he insisted their opponents look strong to finish the season as champions.
“I’m satisfied we got a point but I’m little bit disappointed we didn’t take all the points,” rasmussen stated.
“But they gave a strong performance and I believe they are one of the favourites to win the league, so I will say I’m happy about the whole outcome but then again I will say we should have had all the three points.”
The Danish trainer was asked if the absence of some of their last season’s key players played a major part in their failure to win the match, “You can’t compare the two sides. I will not make that comparison but I will say is that we’ll do our best and I’m happy with the way we played.”
WAFA will play as guests to Liberty Professionals in week two of the league at the Carl Reindorf Stadium on Sunday, March 25.
