Talented Mathew Cudjoe ready for bigger role at Asante Kotoko- Maxwell Konadu

Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu has declared the sensation teenager Mathew Anim Cudjoe will receive more first-team opportunities after netting his debut goal in the 2-0 win over Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday.
The gaffer was left in awe of the talented 16 year old who climbed off the bench to embellish a lackluster performance by the Porcupine Warriors.
Just as the visitors looked destined to pick a point at the Baba Yara Stadium, super sub Mathew Cudjoe broke the deadlock in the 85th minute with a delightful finish before Richard Arthur doubled their lead a minute later to seal a hard fought win.
Speaking to reporters after the match, Coach Maxwell Konadu praised the youngster and assured he will not hesitate to give him more playing time despite his tender years.
Kotoko will travel to Accra to face arch-rivals Hearts of Oak next Sunday in the Super clash and it is expected that Cudjoe will have hand on how things unfold.
“I think he is ready, Brazil has been doing it, most of the countries have been doing it at even the world cup stage.
I think when you see such a talent and you let it go, that won’t be fair to Ghanaians,” he added.
“With the talent he has, we need to encourage him and not to rush him but gradually he is picking so let’s wait. We are not saying he is the one to change everything for Kotoko but with time he can only get better.”
