Striker Frederick Boateng is confident of becoming a key figure at Kotoko

Frederick Boateng targets “definitive role” at Kotoko

Posted on: Mon Apr 16, 2018 - Report by Gideon Boakye Botwe

New boy Frederick Boateng has revealed his intentions ‘to become an important player for Kotoko’ following his match winning debut goal in last Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Dwarfs.

The striker, who joined Kotoko this season after leaving Oman's Muscat FC, hit the ground running with a goal in his first Premier League game for the Porcupines which eventually then became the all-important match winner in Kumasi.

The former Inter Allies player told Kotoko Express his debut goal has settled his nerves and spurred him on to do more for the club in the games ahead.

"I have loved Kotoko all my life and dreamed of playing here so many times. I was itching to be part of the team and partake in the games when my ITC delayed in coming. Finally, it came and I am glad that I scored in my debut game and gave a performance that made the fans happy."

"I knew I was walking into an environment where my performances would be scrutinised like never before, I was not the least nervous coming into the game. The goal has even encouraged me to do more going forward. It is heartwarming when a player scores on his first day. It makes you believe that you can go on to become an important player for the club. That is my aim."

Frederick Boateng told the club’s official mouthpiece though he believed in his capabilities; he would nonetheless strive to improve with the collaborative efforts of his colleagues as well as the backing and the prayers of the supporters.

"There is a limit every human being can go and players are no exception. I cannot do much without the involvement of my colleagues, and the support and prayers of the fans. There is not a single player in Kotoko who is not here on merit. We can do our human best, but that cannot take us far if God is not on our side. And, that would happen when we commit ourselves to him. As a footballer, I always try my best to do the things that I can do, and leave the rest to God. So the fans should support and also pray for us."
