Former Asante Kotoko striker George Abege has delivered a damning verdict on the club’s big boy status insisting that he was not a failure during his spell at Asante Kotoko.
The Ugandan endured a short-lived career as he failed to meet up to expectations and was eventually offloaded by authorities.
Abege joined the club in controversial circumstances just 2 years ago with his signing raising several eyebrows. However, his contract was mutually terminated earlier this year after failing to score goals, and play, on a regular basis for the Kumasi-based club.
Having won the 2019 President’s Cup with the club before his departure, the lanky forward says he does not see himself as a failure despite Kotoko supporters tagging him as one.
“A failure is determined on how somebody want to see it, if you say am a failure I don’t have a problem, but for me I think I did my part as a player”- Abege told Wontumi Radio.
“My time at Kotoko was a big challenge for me no doubt about that but I won’t say I failed”.
“I will thank Kotoko for the opportunity they gave me and I feel honored, But what I know is, I did my possible best.” He ended.
“In an interview with Kumasi based Wontumi TV, Abege said, football is not spoken, football is played on the pitch and not at the office nor the roadside so whatever you do on the pitch will determine whether what you’re doing was right from outside or not because what they display on the pitch shows that Kotoko is not big enough”.
George Abege played just five competitive games during his five months marriage with the Porcupines where he failed to score or provide an assist before his contract was eventually terminated in January 2020.
