Ebusua Dwarfs head coach Ernest Thompson claims his midfield players are “better” when juxtaposed with Asante Kotoko’s “overhyped” Fabio Gama.
Ebusua Dwarfs will engage the Reds in an outstanding league game today at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
Gama will make his third successive start for the Porcupines if he is named in the lineup this afternoon.
The Brazilian in his last two games seems to have won over many local football pundits after showing a glimpse of a quality playmaker and have one assist already.
However, Thompson feels he has midfielders who poses the same quality as the Brazilian or even better.
“Yes, Fabio Gama has added some bite to Kotoko set setup. But he is not all in all player that we will say we are afraid of him, no. We have equally better midfielders than him at Dwarfs. Which I can beat my chest without any doubt. I will say it today and I will stay it tomorrow and I will say it the next day.” He told Kumasi FM
He added that although Gama is a good footballer many people who follow the local league are exaggerating in terms of his qualities.
“People are overhyping Fabio Gama. Who is Fabio Gama? We had better midfielders in Ghana before Gama came. I can mention good midfielders before Fabio Gama came to Ghana. He is doing well and I am not saying he is a bad player. But he is not a game-changer. We have game changers and players who can stop Fabio Gama.”
“Fabio Gama is a good player but we should not say it as if we don’t have his calibre in the league. We have players who are performing better. Even Gladson Awako is far far far better than him currently in the Ghana Premier League. When you come to my team I have midfielders who are far far better than Fabio Gama. He is playing well but he is not the best among the best.”
The Ebusua Dwarfs-Kotoko game will kick at 3 PM local time.
