Coach Mas-Ud Dramani has hit back at his critics who believe he will fail at Asante Kotoko.
The ex Guan Stars coach took over from Maxwell Konadu who exited to take his place on the Black Stars bench as an assistant coach.
Dramani has since been in the shadows of Koandu who led Kotoko to Premier League glory last season.
Members of the critical media have analyzed and in some instances questioned the style and tactics of Dramani.
Indeed, he is being labeled in some quarters as the â€˜Womenâ€™s Coachâ€™ for his exploits with the Ghana U-17 Womenâ€™s team.
Dramani who has refused to speak to the media apart from his post match sessions surprisingly decided to respond to his critics after the draw with Hearts of Oak.
"Haven't some of you said severally that I can't coach Kotoko? Well, haven't you?" he quizzed the gathered media at the post-match press conference.
The response is already being interpreted as Dramani cracking under mounting pressure at Kotoko especially after the disappointing draw with Hearts.
The Porcupine Warriors who are still unbeaten currently lie 7th in the top flight after seven rounds of matches.
They next travel to face Tema Youth on Sunday.
