Asante Kotoko head coach, Maxwell Konadu has revealed a “sporting decision” was the reason for Felix Annan’s absence in the post after the Captain lost his position to Kwame Baah.

Felix Annan was benched in the Porcupines’ Premier League matchday-six win at Hearts of Oak as he resumed work after missing the previous fixture against Dwarfs to wed his girlfriend.

The change worked too as Kwame Baah put up a splendid performance against Hearts of Oak after holding the fort gallantly in their 2-0 win over Dwarfs.

“The night before the Hearts (of Oak) game, usually I prefer to interact with my technical and players a night before a game than on matchdays,” explained Maxwell Konadu.

“I meet with my technical team and discuss everything about the match. We discuss who to play and who to be on the bench on the match day. Everyone brings his idea and then we discuss to find the best out of them.”

“In the said match, Kwame Baah was to start,” Maxwell Konadu continued. “Felix had been excused the previous week to hold his wedding so it was only proper that we started Kwame Baah. And he did not disgrace himself. His performance was okay with us.”
