Renowned sports analyst Jeffery Asare has reiterated his desire to create an “ultra” for Kumasi Asante Kotoko(KAK).
The sports analyst who is also a KAK enthusiast on his routine duty as a sports pundit at kessbenfm/tv says he is planning to create ultras for Asante Kotoko in the future.
He was speaking about how critical and interesting it is for football clubs to have such distinctive supporters, although they are often perceived as “excessive noise makers”.
He cited an example with Genoa in Italy and Shalke 04 in Germany and how their respective ultras has helped to keep their players and sometimes managers on their toes when the need arises.
” ultras are not that bad, they are all part of football. I remember Genoa fans stripping off the jerseys of their players, allowing them to walk to the dressing room somewhat naked because they felt they were undeserving putting on the Genoa jersey after they lost heavily to an opposing team”.
Ultras are a type of football fans renowned for fanatical support and massive vocal support in large groups and often display the banners of their club at the football stadium.
He added that all of these are designed to help create an encouraging atmosphere for the home team and to intimidate opposing players and supporters.
