Football News Asante Kotoko players having sleepless night due to poor results - Captain Ibrahim Danlad

Asante Kotoko captain Danlad Ibrahim says the playing body has been experiencing sleepless nights due to the poor results they have been churning out.

The Porcupine Warriors had a great start to the ongoing season and finished the first round at the second spot.

However, they’ve been very disappointing in the second round and are currently winless in their last seven matches in all competitions, which has seen the club drop to 11th on the table.

This has led to criticism from fans, with some of the supporters storming the team’s training ground on Tuesday to demand better performances from the team.

Following the agitation by the fans, the life patron of the club, Otumfuo called for an emergency meeting to discuss issues affecting the club.

Danlad has since rendered an apology on behalf of the players to the fan base and said they did not deserve the poor results from the team. He further revealed that some of the players have been having sleepless nights and promised to work hard to turn things around.

“We would first like to apologise to our supporters because we know they don’t deserve this kind of result and the things that are happening in the team. However, we want to assure them that we will do whatever it takes to turn it around,” Danlad told the club’s media,

“It’s very, very bad because a lot of us can’t even sleep and taking into context what we want to do for Asante Kotoko and our careers, this result doesn’t speak well of us the playing body.

“But we know it’s part of the job and the only thing we have to do is to change things around now, is to work hard and stay focused. Other than that, it could be worse.”

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko will look to halt their poor run when they host league leaders, FC Samartex in the Matchday 27 games at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.
