In an interview with Kumasi-based Radio station, Nhyira FM, Barreto stated the Reds are just big in name and not in terms of being a football team. “I know Asante Kotoko fans won’t be happy with this but I must say it,” Barreto said in an interview with Nhyira FM. “Asante Kotoko is only a big name and not a big team because they lack so many things a big team should be having.

“A big team should be having their own physiotherapy room, a strong youth team, philosophy, video room amongst other infrastructure.” Asante Kotoko ended the 2020/21 season without a trophy after finishing second in the Ghana Premier League and were knocked out of the quarter finals of the MTN FA Cup by Berekum Chelsea.

Bongokuhle Hlongwane’s netted the only goal of the game in the 82nd minute after an improved second half performance from the hots. The host earlier had a goal ruled out for offside after Percy Tau looked to be in position before finishing off a cross in the 3th minute. Goalkeeper Richard Ofori was given a respite in the second half after letting a ball through his legs but the Bafana Bafana failed to capitalize after a striker misdirected the ball.

The Black Stars started the game well and had an early chance when defender Fafawu Mohammed sent striker Joel Fameyeh through, only for him to be clipped by De Reuck. The South Africa defender was then booked. However, the game swung immediately with the hosts dominating possession, but it was until the 32nd minute when Percy Tau though he had broken the deadlock only for him to be ruled offside. Five minutes later a freekick by the South African’s saw Richard Ofori, fumble but the rebound went way off. Ghana were lucky to head into the break with the result goalless.
