Johnson Smith talks rejuvenating the Asante Kotoko brand

​Asante Kotoko interim head coach Johnson Smith has revealed that the club will not be doing a major squad overhaul ahead of the Ghana Premier League season, Goal reported.

The new season is set to kick off on December 28 and Asante Kotoko will be looking to secure a 24th title to add to their cabinet - they happen to be the most successful club in Ghana.

"I have a good squad and I am content with them. They are about 34 in number," Smith told Graphic Sports.

"Although some of them may be transferred to other teams and some are opting not to renew their contract, we should be able to work with what we have.

“I’m not bent on recruiting new ones. I will train those I have and ensure they play to my philosophy.

"I have a couple of good players on the injury list right now, like Abdul Ganiyu, Maxwell Baakoh and Richard Senanu.

"Hopefully they will recover soon and join the team in good time to help us achieve our objective for the season.”

“My main aim is to by all means return the team to play in one of the African club competitions," the coach added.

"Kotoko is a big club and as such they have to compete in big competitions.

"I am building a very strong team that can win against any team and as well play to the admiration of the fans.

“I know the supporters want to see good football so that is what I am doing. I only need time and support from Kotoko fans."
