Akonnor CAF PressCK Akonnor’s side were hoping to win the game to boost their morale ahead of CAF CONFED Cup playoffs

Asante Kotoko coach CK Akunnor gave a cutting retort to a journalist who questioned his playing style after Sunday’s JAK Kuffour Cup match against regional rivals AshantiGold.

The Porcupine Warriors took the lead in the 57th minute through Emmanuel Gyamfi but the Miners levelled through Richard Djodi.

But AshantiGold were exhilarating to watch and looked the better side which Akunnor agrees.

”We saw AshGold. They kept the ball, they were playing- James Akaminko was showing, McCarthy was playing and that’s how I want my team to be playing,’’ the ex-Ghana captain said.

But the former Dreams FC coach got incensed when a journalist asked what was he doing about his style of play.

”I am working on it. The fact is that I have been here not more than four months. I was with AshGold for how long? So please when you are asking your questions reason up. You understand me.

”Let me finish (rumblings in the hall). I will come here and I will not talk about my midfield again. If you ask me the question, I will give you the answer that you need.

”I want us to talk and I want to be honest. If you ask me ‘what am I doing about it?’ What do you mean by that? I have been here for how long? Say it you are the journalist. Three months.”
