Former Asante Kotoko defender Godfred Yeboah has urged the club's supporters to exercise patience with new manager Steve Polack after the club won the 2017 President Cup against Hearts of Oak at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Monday.

The Kumasi giants have had a poor season in the Ghana Premier League, currently sitting fourth position and eight points behind leaders Wafa with ten matches to complete the season.

However, after winning the President Cup, a section of the supporters believe they must add the league trophy to their cabinet.

"I think Steve Polack has done well within this short period he took over from the former coach. He is a good coach who can achieve success with the club if given the necessary support," Yeboah told Goal.

"The supporters must exercise patience because the fact that we've won the President Cup doesn't mean the league is automatically ours. He's now working on his tactics with the players he met and those he brought along so it is not as easy as many perceive.

"We don’t have to do anything to jeopardise the current form of the players because Polack is yet to taste defeat in eight games. They can even extend the winning streak only if the pressure to succeed is minimized by the supporters. Even if Kotoko aren't able to lift the trophy this campaign, next season will be perfect opportunity because the players will get better with consistency," he added.

Kotoko will host Medeama on Sunday before traveling to Tema to lock horns with Inter Allies and once again welcome Hearts to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium later in July.
