Naby Keita ready for showdown with Kwame Poku for starting berth

Asante Kotoko's Guinean import Naby Keita believes the arrival of Kwame Poku will bring the best out of him.

Poku joined the Porcupine Warriors during the second transfer window but yet to make his debut.

The former Nkoranza Warriors player is said to impress his teammates in training.

And it looks like Keita is looking to that healthy competition the youngster had brought into the team for the striking role.

"It will be very difficult for me with his presence at the club. If a club has many strikers you always work hard to be picked but if you are one or two you will be reluctant towards your training because you always know you'd be selected," Keita is quoted by Kotoko Express.

"Kwame [Poku] is a very very good striker. The first time I saw him I was very happy for him as a striker. Yacouba who was one of our best strikers is no more with us so we have to show the supporters that we can be like him or even better.

"The team is not about only Keita or Kwame [Poku] rather all of us so I am not scared of Kwame's arrival because the coach is always looking at all of us so I am not scared.

"It is all about working hard because it is the coach who looks at our performance at training and selects who is to play.''

Asante Kotoko have two other others William Opoku Mensah and Richard Arthur.
