CAF CC: Akonnor keeps faith with Yacouba Songne ahead of Nkana match

Asante Kotoko head coach, CK Akonnor, believes that forward Yacouba Songne, will soon get back to scoring goals for the club and that he is not too concerned by the recent dip in form.

Songne was a very regular scorer for the team as they got ready for the CAF Confederation Cup but he is yet to score in the qualifiers and the main group stage despite setting up five goals for the team.

Fans have stated their concern at the scoring drought but C.K. Akonnor is not perturbed and is still confident in the player’s scoring abilities.

“Concerning Yacouba, he is doing everything that a footballer can do. He is not hiding from the chances to score. It is just that he is not finding the target. I feel sorry for him but he is doing everything possible to score. We are working on that and we are encouraging him. I just believe it is a matter of time.”

Yacouba is expected to be part of the Kotoko team that flies to Zambia on Wednesday for their third group game of the CAF Confederation Cup against Nkana.
