Asante Kotoko’s deputy head coach Michael Osei has bemoaned the poor state of the pitch at the Kumasi Sports Stadium.
The start of the new league season has been slated for the 20th of February despite the inability of a number of teams to confirm the readiness of their home grounds.
“This is one of the major problems we face in Ghana and we must address the situation because it results in a lot of injuries.
“We all witnessed the injury to Dauda Mohammed and its a situation which could have been avoided.
“If we don’t address these things as soon as possible it will result in more injuries,he told some journalists who caught up with him after the team’s 2-0 pre-season victory over Bechem United.
The Porcupine Warriors have been one of the busiest sides during the just ended transfer window and have been touted as favourites to wrestle back their league crown despite losing their training ground temporarily after fire gutted the facility.
Kotoko will continue their preseason against Nigerian side Ifeanyi Ubah on Wednesday.
