Ebusua Dwarfs head coach Ernest Thompson says his strategy to make things difficult for Asante Kotoko’s midfielder Fabio Gama worked out to his satisfaction.
According to the Dwarfs gaffer, his strategy prevented the Brazilian from influencing the game as he did in previous games despite his side’s 1-0 loss to Kotoko.
Gama after his performance for Kotoko against Liberty Professionals and WAFA got people talking about his influence in the team but failed to live up to the standard set for himself.
He did not have a major influence in the game against the Cape Coast side.
Gama failed to score his first goal in the Ghana Premier League after his header in the 35th minute didn’t end at the back of the net.
He was substituted in the 67th with the ushering in of Baby Keita.
“The kitchen was too hot for Gama and you saw it. That is why he was taken off. I said it before the game and am justified,” he said after the game.
“Before the game I said that we were going to neutralize some of their players and you can see that Kwame Poku was a passenger in the game.
“I am very proud of my boys. They performed well but we lost at the end. But I am happy with the performance” he added.
Christopher Nettey’s 71st minute header gave the Porcupine Warriors the needed three points as they move to the third position of the league log with sixteen points.
