Former Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe has jumped to the defense of embattled striker Songne Yacouba.
The Burkinabe international has failed to score a goal in seven competitive games for the Porcupine Warriors.
Yacouba was wasteful in his side’s 2-1 victory against ZESCO United in the CAF Confederation Cup on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium but assisted all the two goals.
However, according to Bekoe, Yacouba needs help up front as he is not a natural goal scorer but rather a decoy.
“Sogne Yacouba’s style of play is similar to that of Kwabena Yaro. Such a player needs a goalscorer who will play alongside with him either than that the supporters will always be shouting oh ah because Sogne Yacouba is not a goal scorer but a decoy, he needs help up front,” he told Oyerepa FM.
Yacouba’s goal drought has raised a lot of concerns among the fans despite his immense contribution to the team.
He has registered five assists in the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup for the team.
