Kotoko coach Mas-Ud Dramani defends rotation policy

Published on: 26 November 2012

Asante Kotoko coach Mas-Ud Dramani says it is necessary to tinker with his side due to changes in opposition.

The champions remain unbeaten this season and picked up a vital 2-1 win at Tema Youth on Sunday.

Kotoko have however not had a consistent team for the matches played so far this season in the Ghanaian top flight.

This has raised some concerns of the team’s inconsistencies this season.

But Dramani has defended his varied team selection saying it is based on the opposition.

"Every game comes with its own demands,"he said.

"And therefore you need to select players who will strengthen your team against the opposition.

"You could have a player play in one game but will not play in the next simply because you are not facing the same opposition.

"In this game for instance I had to take out a striker in order to protect my team and it worked."

Kotoko have now broken into the top four with 14 points – just one behind leaders Aduana Stars after eight rounds of games.

    Vultures of the the same dirty instincts flock together. I am not surprised at all that these two well known oxymoronic crazy guys are of the same sarcastically crazy opinion together. This page deals about what kotoko coach has said regarding his selection approach to matches, a question which he dealt with easily. Where else did Akwesi Appiah's name came in here for you crazy guys to comments about Akwesi Appiah. You guys should grow up and wise up.

    ANSONG, DONT MIND NYANTAKYI. WE WILL MISS OUT ON THE AFCON TROPHY AND BOTH HIM AND APPIAH WILL BE CASTRATED AWAY FROM THEIR POSITIONS. APPOIAH HAS NEVER COACHED A CLUB IN GH, BUT SOMEHOW GETS THE NOD TO COACH GBSTAR...AS FOR DRAMANI, HE IS RIGHT. THERE R TOO MANY GYIMI GYIMI JJ KIDS, SSS DROPUOUTS IN GH WHO DONT THINK BEFORE THEY TALK. DRAMANI SHOULD BE THE NEW METEORS COACH. EVEN ALEX FERGUSON DOES NOT USE THE SAME SELECTION FOR EVERY GAME...

    Its my fervent prayer that the Great team(Kumasi Asante Kotoko) will clinch the league cup as Adu Gyamfi Senior High School(ADGASS) is winning the Milo games for three consecutive times. Long live Kotoko long live ADGASS!!

    This are some of the coaches we want in Gh. He tells how he wins his matches. This a case for tactical disposition and i hope young and upcoming coaches will learn from him. Some coaches we know cant even define and vary tactics and will always blame ref for thier loose.
