“We are working on Sogne Yacouba. Talking and motivating him to improve. Although he is providing the assists for the scorers, we are working on his goals scoring abilities,” he told Happpy FM.
Yacouba was impressive for Kotoko during the team’s pre-tournament preparations. However he is failed to score against AshantiGold in the John Agyekum Kuffour Cup, Kariobangi Sharks, Coton Sports, Al Hilal and ZESCO United.
