Ex-Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Simba Toure says he was better than Songne Yacouba during his days at Kotoko and he shouldn’t be compared to the Burkinabe because he is yet to reach his level.
The 31-year old currently plays for Ivorian giants Asec Mimosa boasted that even his record in the Ghana Premier League is unmatchable and Yacouba hasn’t achieved half of that.
“Yacouba hasn’t done even half of what I did for Asante Kotoko. It’s not the same because I won the best player in Ghana, have scored a lot of goals for Kotoko and even won the goal king.” Toure told Silver FM
“I’ve done a lot of things for Kotoko that Yacouba is yet to do, so you cannot compare.”
“But I’m praying he overtakes what I did at Kotoko because he’s a good player and he’s like my young boy”, he concluded.
Toure joined Asante Kotoko in 2007 from Africa Sports.
He later rejoined the club in 2015 and left to Bechem United in 2016 before sealing a move to Asec.
