Former Asante Kotoko forward, Michael Osei affectionately called 'Ember Power' has emphasized that the club needs to build on staying consistent if they want to succeed.

The Porcupine Warriors club has not done poorly in the past few years but have also not been at their best when compared to the past where they were outright favorites to lift any trophy.

Speaking to Hello FM in an interview, former attacker Michael Osei has shared how Asante Kotoko enjoyed so much success during his time at the club.

“During our time we had constant 22 players we were selecting the first 18 from. One problem at Kotoko now is we keep on changing players so there's no teamwork and consistency in the team.

“We should have quality 24 or 28 players and know those who are our first eleven and those who will replace them if there is an injury. That's what will make the team stronger”, Michael Osei noted.

He continued, “During our time those on the bench were even powerful. Whenever they were introduced you see results. When Arhin Duah, Charles Taylor, and I start the game, you'll see Shilla Alhassan and Frank Osei on the bench who were equally great players.

“So without consistency, Kotoko cannot get anywhere. Stephen Oduro, Arhin Duah, and I were matured before joining Kotoko. We played for about four years and was no fluke that we played two finals in two years in Africa”.

According to Michael Osei, signing players who don't even play six months is a waste of money. He believes the club should save money and use it to buy quality players that will play consistently and deliver.
