Experienced Ghanaian tactician, Malik Jabir has told the rank and file of Asante Kotoko to exercise patience with head coach Maxwell Konadu.
Maxwell Konadu, has come under the lens after just two games of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League with his side mustering two points out of a possible six.
Konadu’s Porcupine Warriors escaped a near defeat on match day one where they were outclassed and outplayed by a stubborn Techiman Eleven Wonders side, which aroused the conversation of the gaffer’s supposed ‘ineptitude’ by some sections of the club.
Following the rumoured exit of Legon Cities gaffer Goran Barjakterivic, Konadu has been tipped as the next manager to be shown the exit door by many bookmakers.
But Konadu rose to the billing as his outfit churned out an improved display against Berekum Chelsea at the dreaded Golden City park which nearly saw the Reds secure their first win of the season until former Ghana Premier League goal-king Emmanuel Clottey struck a ferocious freekick to snatch a draw late on in the game.
The results seem to have calmed some nerves while others are still agitating over the club’s inability to pick a win in their opening two games under the former Black Stars assistant coach.
However, ex-Black Meteors coach and Asante Kotoko legend Malik Jabir has thrown his weight behind the former Black Stars B head coach imploring the decision makers of the club to exercise patience with Konadu.
“It will be too premature to make any fair assessment of any coach including Maxwell Konadu. We have not played enough games to take any decision on any coach. It will be very unfair. At least ten games will be enough to make any fair assessment of Maxwell.”
Malik Jabir told Kumasi-based Akoma FM.
Next up for Maxwell Konadu and his charges is a CAF Champions League qualifier against Nouadhibou before squaring off against renascent Great Olympics, who are on top of the league log with four points after two matches, on match day three of the Ghanaian top flight.
