Asante Kotoko Coach CK Akonnor has admitted he feels sad for misfiring striker Songne Yacouba.

The Burkinabe import who was the club’s top scorer at the end of the botched Ghana Premier League first round is on a run of six games without scoring for the Porcupine Warriors.

Despite missing a lot of chances, Yacouba provided two assists in Kotoko’s 2-1 victory against Zesco United on Wednesday and Akonnor believes it’s only a matter of time before the goals start to flow again.

“The boy is doing very well. He’s been working very hard. Just that his finishing hasn’t been good. I feel sad for him sometimes” Akonnor said in his post match interview.

“As I said it’s just a matter of time before he starts scoring. I really like how he is helping the team,” he added.

The 24-year-old joined Kotoko from Malian Club Stade Malian.
