Former Asante Kotoko striker Sadick Adams says he was unimpressed with the quality on display from both Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko during their match day 6 clash in the Ghana Premier League“I believe the match was not entertaining because the players were afraid to express themselves,” he stated.The Kumasi based side managed a hard fought 2 – 1 win to keep them in the hunt for the league title.Adams however, is of the opinion that the player’s lack of ability to fully showcase their technical prowess was disappointing for the fan looking to enjoy good football.“They didn’t have that confidence that you need in a game like this.“Our Supporters talk and that is normal but I expected the experienced players to do more.“These days our game is route one and all about getting your three points,” he reflected on The Tracker on Citi TV.The former U – 17 striker is back in Ghana after a short stint in Lebabon playing for Shabab Bourj.
