“I’ve never been afraid to face Asante Kotoko in my career’ – Bashir Hayford


Ashanti Gold SC, head coach Bashir Hayford says he doesn’t fear at all facing Kumasi Asante Kotoko on Sunday in Obuasi.

The miners host Kotoko in match day 4 of the Ghana Premier League at the Obuasi Len Clay sports Stadium on Sunday and according to the veteran trainer playing against his former club is a normalcy.

Dzravko Lugarusic’s side have accumulated seven points from their opening three games.

AshantiGold, on the other hand have collected four points from the same number of matches in the league.

Though connoisseurss of the game have tipped the Porcupine Warriors as favorites to emerge victors in the cagey clash on Sunday, Coach Bash says he approach for the game wouldn’t be different from his previous matches played so far this season.

He adds his record against Kotoko indicates that he has nothing to fear in the match.

“I’ve never been afraid to face Asante Kotoko in my career, no way. Even when I left the club, I went to Kessben FC, and I believe everybody is aware of what I did to them. Afterwards I led Medeama to the Baba Yara stadium, what happened?

“I even led Power FC when nobody gave us a chance to the Baba Yara, I triumphed, so playing against Kotoko on any day, with any club doesn’t shivers through my spine.”

“I’m delighted to have once coached them in my career, but I’m never afraid of them a bit. It will be a great spectacle of football match so I’ll urge the fans to troop to the Len Clay stadium in their numbers.”
