Kotoko coach Barreto refuses to give up on title race despite Hearts of Oak defeat

Asante Kotoko coach Mariano Barreto has given his a glimmer of hope to the club faithful saying they can still topple leaders Hearts of Oak and win the Ghana Premier League.

The Portuguese trainer saw his side lose out in the title race after a 1-0 defeat to the Phobians in Accra.

”We made one mistake in the match and we conceded the goal. We had a great chance with [Augustine] Okrah, easy but we didn’t make it (score).  So if you don’t make the goals (score), you accept the result. Congratulations to Hearts,” the former Black Stars trainer told StarTimes in a post-match speech.

Kotoko are now three points behind Hearts with three matches to the end of the season.

Mathematically, it is Hearts of Oak’s to lose but Barreto is refusing to give up.

”But I award (praise) my players. They fought, they made everything. In the end we have to wait till the end of the league,” he added.
