Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu says he plans to keep as many clean sheets as possible in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.
The club has been busy in bringing in players to bolster their squad for the new campaign including defender Patrick Asmah, Yussif Mubarik, Andrews Appau and goalkeeper Razak Abalora.
According to Konadu, he wants his team to be noted for being solid in the upcoming season as he believes in assertion attack win you games but defence wins you titles.
“We want to focus mostly on keeping clean sheets as many as we can that is one of the only time we will be amassing points to be champions.
“We have worked defensively starting from the front line, midfield and defence. They are doing so well, so we will make sure that we send the same mentality to the season when it starts.”
“When we keep clean sheets with the squad that we have we, at least we will create a couple of chances and hopefully, we will utilise them and that will put us ahead of the others.”
Kotoko over the weekend played a warm-up friendly against Divison One side Samartex FC. The friendly encounter ended in a pulsating 2-2 draw.
Benjamin Yorke and George Amanoo strike for the lower tier side was cancelled out by Kwame Opoku’s brace at he Samraboi stadium.
Asante Kotoko start their league campaign against Eleven Wonders at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, November 15.
