Asante Kotoko legend, Malik Jabir has urged the fans to rally behind the team despite the disappointing start to the new Ghana Premier League season.
Asante Kotoko on match day one of the 2023/2024 Ghana Premier League season drew goalless with Hearts of Lions at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
The fans expressed their disappointments after the game but Malik Jabir has said that it is too early for them to give up on the team.
“I beg the fans. This is the first game in the league. We shouldn’t pass judgement on the team now because it’s not the time to do that. Let’s wait after five matches, then we’ll see what is happening,” Jabir told Kessben Sports.
“…I beg them to come in their numbers than the first game. There is a spirit between them (the fans) and the players. When the players see more people coming to see them, it tells them a story; if he goes to the pitch what he should do.
“So, I am appealing that they should come more than the last game and let’s see what will happen next,” he added.
Asante Kotoko’s next game will be against Bibiani Gold Stars FC.
