The Crabs trainer prior to the Kotoko game blew fuse claiming the former Brazil U20 player is an overhyped player.
Following his side’s 1-0 defeat to the Porcupine Warriors at Robert Mensah Sports Stadium, he has advised the club not to put too much pressure on Gama to impress the supporters.
“Fabio Gama is an up and coming player, They (Kotoko) shouldn’t put much pressure on him to do things he can’t do. He will do very well if they give him time to select and adapt to our style of play,” Thompson told OTEC FM
“I had the chance of meeting him and I think he still has more room for improvement. Gama could be a good addition to the team” He added.
Gama joined Kotoko in a two-year deal in October, making his full debut in a 2-0 victory over Liberty Professionals earlier this month.
He last played for Swedish lower division side Jonkoping Sondra, the spell ending in March last year.
