Coach Johnson Smith has assumed duty with the porcupine warriors as the caretaker trainer since the sacking of Kjetil Zachariasen who he was brought to assist.

The former Karela Fc coach is no stranger to being a care taker coach as he has in the past assumed such duties for Asante Kotoko.

Smith says he has a very good squad and is not looking forward to improve the squad through transfers although some players may choose to leave or transfer listed.

"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.

The stand in Kotoko gaffer says he counts a lot on some key players who are now recuperating from some long term injuries they suffered.

"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."

It is the third time Johnson Smith is working with the porcupine warriors .
