The 20-year-old marksman was lambasted his the side's Serbian gaffer for his display - which he has accepted in good faith.

"I'm not angry with his comments after the stalemate against Elmina Sharks. I believe he has the right to criticise and praise us when it's due so I'm cool," Amankona told Otec FM.

"I've scored some incredible goals that he has loved in the past, so I will do my best in the remaining games to meet his expectations.

"I believe that I've got the ability to be a great player so adhering to advises from people like Tanasijevic is not out of order since it will help my career," he added.
