Asante Kotoko assistant coach Johnson Smith has scathingly claimed that most of the players do not deserve to play for the club.
And he would have sacked many and kept only four, whom he believes deserve to continue representing the Porcupine Warriors, if management allowed him.
If I am to be allowed to do my own recruitment and assessment with this current Kotoko team, only four of the current players excluding the goalkeepers will stay," Johson Smith said.
In the same interview with Smith said players 'unserious attitude cost the club the Ghana Premier League title.
The Porcupine Warriors finished second behind Hearts of Oak despite occupying the top spot in the early stages of the second round.
The 1-0 defeat suffered against the Phobians literally ended Kotoko's title hopes. They went on to drop further points and ended the campaign four points adrift.
"The attitude of the players towards training at a point in time did not help us, especially after losing to Heart of Oak. I needed to speak to them, advise some of them to approach training with seriousness," Smith told Westgold Radio.
Kotoko also failed to capture the MTN FA Cup as they exited the competition in the last four. That means, their season ended without a trophy.
