Berekum Chelsea midfielder Jordan Opoku is confident the club can thrive without striker Emmanuel Clottey.
The 25-year-old sealed a three-year deal with Tunisian giants Esperance last week after impressing heavily for the 2010 Ghanaian champions.
There are many who feel the absence of the goal-getter could hurt their ambitions of reclaiming the Premier League crown from Asante Kotoko.
But the ex-Kotoko enforcer believes they can survive without him.
â€œHe (Clottey) had done his part and thatâ€™s why he got the deal. I believe we can cope without him,â€Opoku said
â€œWe play like a unit without relying on any individual. That is the reason why we got to the group phase of the Caf Champions League.
â€œThe club has bought some quality players and so there is no need to panic at all,"
Opoku scored Chelseaâ€™s only goal as they coasted to a solitary 1-0 win over TP Mazembe in their final group game on Sunday.
