Asante Kotoko SC head coach Mariano Barreto Jeronimo has taken a big swipe at the club as he claims they are only a big name and not a big team.
The Portuguese trainer believes the Ghanaian giants lack so many things and that cannot make them a big team.
Kotoko finished the 2020/2021 season without winning a trophy with a 2nd position in the Ghana Premier League and also got eliminated in the quarter-finals in the FA Cup.
In a exclusive interview with Nhyira FM, Barreto said;
"I know Asante Kotoko fans won't be happy with this but I must say it," he expressed.
"Asante Kotoko is only a big name and not a not a big team because they lack so things a big team should be having."
"A big team should be having their own physiotherapy room, a strong youth team, philosophy, video room amongst other infrastructure."
Barreto was appointed in March 2021 on a one-and-a-half-year contract replacing Maxwell Konadu who was sacked in December 2020.
