Bashiru Hayford Wants Asante Kotoko to Lead GPL Table : Former Asante Kotoko head coach Bashiru Hayford says he is happy with the fine form of the Reds under the tutelage of Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum after five matches into the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season.
“So I am praying for Kotoko to go top of the league and you know when Kotoko is on top of the table , it is always hard for other teams to displace them” – Bashiru Hayford.
Dr. Ogum won the 2021/22 league title with Kotoko before he resigned from his post at the start of last season. The former WAFA gaffer did not manage any club in the 2022/23 season but returned to Kumasi to begin his second stint as Kotoko head coach and Hayford is delighted with the progress of the Kotoko team.
The former Medeama and Legon Cities boss is delighted by the recent form of the Reds and says the Porcupine Warriors will be the team to beat if they go top of the standings.
“They are doing very well at the moment. They have won two games in a row and looking at the league it they are able to win about four games and then go top of the league table , it will be difficult for the other teams to bring them down. So I am praying for Kotoko to go top of the league and you know when Kotoko is on top of the table , it is always hard for other teams to displace them.” , Bashiru Hayford said on Fox FM.
“They are doing well. Ogum is someone who frequently calls me to discuss football and all that. He calls me “Uncle”.
“What the team went through in the very first games of the season was normal because it is a new team the coach is forming , it was not like the team was already there. Now they have played five games , people will start seeing the level of Kotoko after the tenth match going.” , the former Ghana U17 national team boss added.
