Asante Kotoko new signing Emmanuel Sarkodie is confident of earning a starting role in the team despite the ‘quality of midfielders in the team.’
The 23-year-old midfielder joined the Porcupine Warriors from Division One side Nkoranza Warriors in the second transfer window. He signed a three-year deal.
He says he has the right qualities to rock shoulders with the likes of Justice Blay, Mudasiru Salifu and Kwame Adom Frimpong for a place in the midfield.
“You cannot mention the names of the best midfielders in Ghana and leave out Senanu, Blay, Frimpong, and Mudasiru, but I believe in myself and the quality that I possess, so they do not scare me at all,” Sarkodie told Kotoko Express App
“They have their individual qualities and I also have mine. I have been working very hard throughout my career. I know the kind of preparations I am going through and have gone through. I believe that I can cope with the challenge and get some good number of game minutes.”
He indicated that he is not worried about the fact that he has not tasted Premier League action before.
According to Sarkodie, it will not have any effect on him.
“I have not played in the Premier League before but that can not slow down my progress in the division. I am much better than most of the players in the league. Kotoko would not have come for me if I was not.”
He has had stints with Cameroonian giants Coton Sport du Garoua.
