We will surely win for them,” he assured. Commenting on their May 1 game against Accra Hearts of Oak, he accepted blame for their disappointing performance, saying “I accept the blame for the results in that match. I am sorry, fans should forgive me” Felix Annan, 23, graduated from the Kumasi Asante Kotoko U-20 and later promoted to the first team of the club.
