Bibiani Gold Stars head coach Michael Osei claims he was a better footballer than Asante Kotoko gaffer Prosper Narteh Ogum during their playing days.
Osei, a former Asante Kotoko star, will will welcome his former side currently coached by Ogum to the Dun’s Park in Bibiani for the top of the table clash in Ghana Premier League matchday three game.
Gold Stars haven’t tasted defeat so far in their debut participation in Ghana Premier League. They whipped Berekum Chelsea at home and held Medeama to a 1-1 draw at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa on Tuesday.
Quizzed who is the senior in coaching between Micheal Osei and Ogum he, the former replied that they are at level pegging but believes he was a better footballer.
“I think maybe Prosper Ogum Narteh and I are almost at the same level in coaching. He is a good coach just like myself. He has done well for Kotoko so far and you can see I’m also doing my bit with Gold Stars who are only playing in the league for the first time,” Osei told Zylofon FM.
“However, in terms of football, I think I was or I’m ahead of him. I was good footballer and everyone who watched me can attest to that fact,” He added.
Osei is also confident that his side will be become the first team to hand Asante Kotoko their first defeat of the season on Friday.
“We’ve noticed that Kotoko have started very well this season. I had the opportunity to watch them last weekend alongside my technical team. We saw that they are very good side but we are also a strong side and our team is jelling very well,” he said.
“It will be an interesting game and very difficult game but I believe that [we will defeat them]. I don’t want to brag. Let’s wait for Friday and see what happens,” he concluded.
