Johnson Smith building on players psyche


Johnson Smith believes it is only a matter of time before our players start showing the desire and hunger required of them at the club. Johnson Smith, although put in temporary charge after the sacking of Maxwell Konadu, is tasked to mold us into a winsome side just as we were in years past.

The gaffer opened his account, this season, with an away win at Dreams FC, but was denied the same at Medeama SC, who grabbed a point courtesy of a latch ditch spot-kick. Johnson Smith, who previously assisted Bashiru Hayford and Kjetil Zachariassen, knows the demand for success at the club and tells us he is working to improve on the players' hunger and desire to complement their potential. "In football, talent is not just enough. You must be hungry for success and show the desire to push it." "One needs to have these two attitudes to be successful in Asante Kotoko. Unfortunately, we do not see these traits in the current generation of players. One must talk to them consistently before they show that hunger. That is exactly what we are doing now."
