Deputy coach of the Black Stars Maxwell Konadu has heaped praises on the current Asante Kotoko squad, claiming it is the best he has seen in recent years.

Konadu, a former Kotoko striker and coach believes the current crop of players at the club are the best the Reds have had in the last three to four seasons.

“I think Kotoko's team is not bad, we will all agree that Kotoko's current team is the best in the last 3 to 4 years, very tough, better than the previous squad”, he said.

“After watching them play against Inter Allies, Meteors and Kariobangi Sharks and the team is improving match after match but there's room for improvement”, Konadu said in an interview on Oyerepa FM.

However, Maxwell Konadu pointed out where the Porcupine Warriors should improve on and stated Kotoko need to boost their attacking options.

“Yet I still think Kotoko needs another deadly striker in the shape of Sogne Yacouba so if one is not available, the other can play satisfactorily, depending on one striker is not the best”

“Another area is the left back and a tough tall central defender”, he ended.

Konadu was appointed as assistant coach of Kotoko the club where he first gained fame as a prolific goal scorer. He, however, signed on as head coach following the sacking of Serbian coach Bogdan Korak on 3rd May 2012

He resigned after guiding the club to their 22nd league title and securing qualification to the CAF champions league in 2013.

However, Asante Kotoko over the weekend drew goalless with Kariobangi Sharks in the CAF Confederation Cup in Kenya.

The draw means the Porcupine Warriors need a victory in the return leg which is on Saturday, December 22, in Kumasi to qualify for the next stage of the competition.
