Executive Chairman of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako has admitted that things are getting tougher for the Porcupine Warriors in the CAF Confederations Cup as the competition progresses.
The last time Asante Kotoko got to the group stage of the competition was in 2008 having been in the final in 2004 when they played Accra Hearts of Oak in the maiden edition.
According to the CEO, most of their players have not played to that top level before so it will take some time to get the players fully ready for the tournament.
“When we started this tournament, they were minors, but now it is left with men. We are not playing easy games at this stage; you always have to strategize and work hard to be able to carry the day. It is learning curve we are learning”
“It’s been long since Kotoko reach this stage, and the team we have managed up to this stage has not gotten to the top yet, we are still preparing them” he told Asempa Sports.
“The teams we are facing have played together for a very long time and they know what they are about, you can at any point in time be taken unaware; but I can assure that we are making amends after the first game, Sunday we will make it” he added.
Asante Kotoko have played three matches so far in the group stage of the CAF Confederations Cup recording only one win out of those matches.
