Asante Kotoko interim manager, Johnson Smith says getting his team in the right frame of mind amidst recent happenings in the club did the magic against Dreams FC.
Kotoko clinched their second win in five games with a 1-0 win over the Still Believe Boys at Dewu in the Ghana Premier League.
Prior to the victory, the Porcupines part ways with their head coach, Maxwell Konadu last Friday after a defeat to Olympics a day before. Also, communications director, Moses Antwi Benefo on the same day tendered his resignation letter.
However, the players had what is seen by many as the best performance by the Reds so far in the new campaign.
Smith reacting to the impressive show of dedication and discipline by his players said all he did was to ‘psych’ the team.
“it is nothing just psyching because I cannot change the team in one day,” he said in a post-match presser
“My aim was to win the three points because it was my first game. Everything I needed to do to get the points I have done it. It wasn’t a bad game and every team that meets Kotoko wants to perform well which makes every match a final match. Therefore we are not going to have it easy in any match.” he added
Kotoko will feature in the first leg of the CAF Champions League’s second preliminary round against Al Hilal Omdurman of Sudan on Wednesday.
