The Porcupine Warriors announced the acquisition of Brazilian midfielder Fabio Dos Santos Gama on 23rd October, 2020.
Gama joined the Reds on a free transfer, having been without a club since parting ways with Swedish second-tier outfit Jonkoping Sodra in March.
The 28-year-old is yet to feature for the side having only joined his new teammates two weeks ago.
‘Kumerican Coutinho’ seem be lacking fitness as he was left out of the team that drew 1-1 with Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City Park over the weekend.
Fabio has again been excluded from the contingent that flew Mauritania to face Nouadhibou FC in the first preliminary match of the CAF Champions League.
In an interview with Energy FM, Toure, who had two successful spells with the Reds, did not mince words after describing the signing of the Brazilian midfielder as ‘useless’.
“We will pray for him because I have said that Ghana Premier League is not easy. It’s a game of ‘men’. But it also depends on the condition he will play in Ghana,” Toure told Energy FM
“I have seen pictures of the pitch Berekum Chelsea and Kotoko played on. Do you think he [Gama] can play on this kind of pitch? Or you take him to Dormaa, do you think he can play well over there? Are you sure he can play at Tarkwa? Sometimes these things matters.”
“So for me, although Kotoko is my former team and it’s where I started my professional career but for me I think it is useless.”
Kotoko is Gama’s third club outside Brazil, having also featured for Swedish fold Varnomo before moving on to Jonkoping.
The midfielder is the third Brazilian to sign for Kotoko in this century following Gleisson de Souza Ferreira in 2005 and Hermes da Silva in 2013.
