Veteran coach J.E Sarpong

Coach J.E Sarpong has advised Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu to rotate his goalkeepers in order to keep them happy and performing at top levels.

The Porcupines, ahead of the new football season have four goalkeepers at their disposal.

Captain Felix Annan, Kwame Baah who was the favoured first choice last season and Danlad Ibrahim who served a one-year loan with Premier League side Berekum Chelsea.

Joining the goalkeeping department is former WAFA and Azam FC shot-stopper Razak Abalora who was in post for the Black Stars friendly against Qatar.

All three are national team goalkeepers. Razak Abalora and Felix Annan represent the Black Stars while Kwame Baah plays for the Ghana U-23 team, Black Meteors.

The presence of these quality keepers could pose a potential headache to the technical department of the team heading into the new season.

Former Great Olympics and Okwahu United coach J. E Sarpong wants Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu and the technical team to grant equal opportunity to all the goalkeepers as they all possess enough quality.

“To be able to keep and satisfy four quality goalkeepers in a team, you’ll have to rotate them depending on the temperament of the goalkeepers and the game involved,” he told Nhyira FM.

“Kwame Baah has been recently been the first choice goalkeeper so I think he’ll continue to be number one in Kotoko,” coach Sarpong added.

Kotoko are currently on preseason duty at the All Nations University in Koforidua as they prepare ahead of the new Ghana Premier League season set to commence on November 13.
