Head Coach of Dreams FC, Abdul Karim Zito has detailed how his outfit got the best of League holders, Asante Kotoko in the final game of the first round of the ongoing betPawa Premier League.
Goals in either half from Still Believe graduate Gael Aholou and Agyenim Boateng Mensah earned Dreams FC a 2-0 win against Asante Kotoko at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu on Sunday, a victory Karim Zito praises his midfield for.
“My midfielders did very well, because if you leave Agadas, Sherif and Rashid Nortey, then you’ll have yourself to blame,” Karim Zito told StarTimes reporters after the game.
“They came with 4-3-3 and I came with a 4-4-2. So I made sure that when we lose the ball we have 5 players chasing for it, instead of 4. We outnumbered them and didn’t give them space because I know they are very technically sound and if you give them space you can’t play them.”
He continued: “So we pressed them not to give them space in order not to do what they want to do and that worked to perfection.”
When quizzed what is goal for the remainder of the season is, he said: “I’m trying to take the team from where we are to the level where will not sleep and think about relegation.”
“For now the way the table is, if you lose a game or two, you’ll find yourself deep down. So I’m trying to elevate the team to a place where we will go to sleep without thinking of relegation. This is the bond of contention here,” Zito added.
Karim Zito and his team will kick start the second round of the season this Sunday at home to Bibiani GoldStars. The Dawu-based side after the first round sit in 9th place with 23 points.
