Seydou Zerbo, the head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, claimed that his team’s 1-0 loss against Karela United on February 2 at CAM Park was the result of their own self-inflicted wounds.
Despite having the most of the ball in the first half, the Porcupine Warriors were unable to convert it into goals.
Samuel Atta Kumi’s penalty kick conversion on minute 63 gave the “Pride and Passion” team the game’s lone goal and broke the scoreless tie.
Zerbo thinks that his team’s inability to capitalize on their opportunities led to the defeat. “The difference is we had the chances to score goals,” he told StarTimes. We are defeated by ourselves because we had every opportunity to score.
“We couldn’t score and eventually the referee gave unwarranted penalty to them and they have their goal to score.”
