The captain of Ghana Premier League giants, Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Felix Annan, has addressed his situation at the club, saying he gets angry because he did not just use one or two days to establish himself in the local scene.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper has been frozen out of the Kotoko number one spot when he sought permission to wed his wife after matchday four of the truncated Ghana Premier League season.
His place has since been taken by the second-choice goalkeeper, Kwame Baah.
The WAFA academy graduate is of the view that he should have been protected if even he lost form because of the work he had put in to become Kotoko’s number goalkeeper.
“The reason sometimes I get hurt is that I didn’t take a day or two to establish myself”, Annan told Topical Radio in Germany.
“With no help, hard work, and help from God I was able to succeed in the local scene and get call ups to the national teams.”
Felix Annan joined Asante Kotoko in 2011 from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord, now WAFA.
They sent him out on loans to Real Tamale United in 2014 and back to his former side, WAFA. Annan returned to Kotoko in 2016 and worked his way to become the club’s number one goalkeeper.
“This was the time the club should have been pushing me ahead, if I have even lost form, they should have tried to help in bringing me up. For me, I won’t talk too much.
“The respect I have for the fans and the love they’ve always shown me is enough.
“I have my time I will tell my story. If we’re doing things right, we should always do it right.
“If it gets to some time, try to protect the people who are at the top, but for here we try to bring down the people who have found their way up.”
Felix Annan kept the post only four times in the called-off 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season.
