Erstwhile Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe has expressed what it is like to play for his former outfit.
Speaking in an interview with Enoch Kofi Adadevoh on KFM TV, Bekoe, who featured for the Porcupine Warriors in the 2007/08 Premier league season showed his gratitude to the Kumasi based club for giving him the privilege to don the red and white colors.
Bekoe added that he still enjoys from that privilege and Kotoko is a club you worship and not only play for. Stressing that it is risky to only play for Kotoko and not worship it.
“We don’t play Kotoko, we worship it. If you go there to play, you might end up losing everything. And you don’t enjoy Kotoko when playing, you enjoy Kotoko when it is done. And there is a saying that a gambler never counts his money until the deal is done,” he told Enoch Kofi Adadevoh on KFM TV.
He added: “I am even enjoying now more than when i was playing. At that time i was so level headed that i wanted to achieve my aim, reason why i came to Kotoko.”
The 2007/08 golden boot winner went on to advice the current crop of players at the club to show more dedication, work hard and fight for the Badge.
Bekoe, who’s currently undergoing a coaching course expressed his desire to manage the club one day.
Eric Bekoe featured for Asante Kotoko in the 2007/08 season and won the Premier League title with the club. He also won the golden boot and the best player award that same season.
