Asante Kotoko legend, Joe Debrah, has expressed concern about the diminishing fear factor for teams playing against Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium.
Debrah, who was a prominent figure for the club in the 1990s, noted that teams no longer approach matches against Kotoko with trepidation but instead view it as an opportunity to have an enjoyable game and secure points.
The Porcupine Warriors have struggled to secure victories at home, going winless in their last six games. They have also failed to win a match in the current premier league season under the leadership of Prosper Ogum.
Debrah voiced his dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs at his former club during an interview with Kessben Sports.
He stated: “The team has made a name for itself already and teams feared when they came up against Kotoko but now no team fears Kotoko. They come and give us problems.
Debrah expressed his concern about the team’s decline and suggested that the fear factor could be restored through additional training and hard work.
“It is worrying and I don’t know what is causing the decline of the team. The fear factor has disappeared. I don’t think it exists and it will only come back if the boys do extra training.
“We are all unhappy Kotoko is losing but there is nothing we can do about it.”
