Kotoko at Hayford's mercy

Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s razor thin hopes of winning the Glo Premier League could disappear this weekend at the hands of their coach Bashir Hayford.
Kotoko, 14 points behind leaders Accra Hearts of Oak with 14 games remaining face a tricky tie against Kessben FC, managed by the man they cruelly dismissed at the start of this season, Bashir Hayford. Kotoko have struggled since allowing the man who won them the league trophy last season to leave. Now he can put the final nail in their miserable season if his Kessben FC side can complete a league double this season. Hayford has said he feels sorry for many of the players at the club but insist his Kessben side will play to win. In the build up to the tie, current Kotoko coach Isaac Opeele Boateng says unless the club sort out their off the field problems, not even Guus Hiddink can drag the Porcupine Warriors out of their present misery. “With the situation we find ourselves in, not even Guus Hiddink will achieve anything at Kotoko,” for the club’s followers desperate for results on the field that will not pass as an excuse.
