Asante Kotoko centre-back, Empem Dacosta, has vowed to turn a new leaf after his purported move away from the club hit a snag during the second transfer window.
The former Karela United was an integral part of the team during the Caf Chanpions League knock-out stages under the tutelage of sacked Kjetil Zachariassen.
However, he has fell behind the pecking order and seen his position taken by Wahab Adams and Agyemang Badu in the early stages of the Premier League.
He was subsequently transfer-listed, a request from head coach Maxwell Konadu on what he described as tactical indiscipline. He was rumoured to be joining Legon Cities but the Porcupines pulled the plugs on the deal at the closing stages.
Dacosta has opened up and promised not to repeat those mistakes which nearly saw him exit the club.
“I am glad that my move was stopped and that I am back into the team,” Dacosta told Kotoko Express App.
“The team would not have taken those steps if I did everything right. I admit that I brought it upon myself and now I have vowed to rewrite everything.
“I do not want to leave and so I have to fight back and prove to the technical bench that they can trust me in me.”
“I have looked at myself in the mirror and reflected on all the games I played; the things I did right and otherwise.
“It is a great opportunity that I have here and I desperately want to improve both on and off the field, and play according to the instructions of the coach to keep my place in the squad.”
