Former Asante Kotoko midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, has urged fans of the club to be patient and support the club.
The former Black Stars man believes the rebuilding the Porcupine Warriors are going through needs the support of the fans to be successful.
After failing to defend the Ghana Premier League title last season, Asante Kotoko has brought back Prosper Narteh Ogum and signed over 10 new players.
Badu said Ogum needs time to be able to get the team to a level where they can compete among the best.
“First of all, Kotoko we are building, I don’t know if our supporters want to understand it because of the kind of pressure Kotoko and Hearts of Oak are having, they will not understand what you are building. So should you bring these young chaps that they will give you two to three years to build a squad that can compete in Africa,” Badu told Accra-based Radio Gold.
“But the reality is that, is Kotoko is building, looking at the players they have brought on board and the strategy of the coach is, he knows how to nurture young talents to become big players.
“So things may be a bit rough from the start of the season, it’s a fact,” Agyemang-Badu added.
