Kotoko legend Osei Kofi advises Porcupine Warriors to stop CAF Champions League campaign

Ghana Premier League outfits Asante Kotoko would make another journey to African Inter Club football next season when they would among the best on the African continent participate in the 2020-2021 CAF Champions League.

And ahead of their awaiting African campaign, legend Osei Kofi has advised his former side not to participate in CAF competitions due to club’s current weak setup.

“It’s not desirable for Asante Kotoko to compete in next season’s CAF competitions. The board are new with experienced and qualified but are not enough ready,” he told Boss FM Sports.

“We shouldn’t allow the board to rush in for achievements as soon as possible but should be concentrated and prepared enough before the make steps for CAF tournament.

“It will be a disaster and misuse of money when the club is allowed to compete in the CAF tournament.”

Osei Kofi who emerges as one of the renowned footballers not only in Kotoko but Ghana as a whole was joint top goalscorer in the 1965 Africa Cup of Nations.

Kotoko were not much convincing before the suspension of the Ghana Premier League back in May.  Despite this, they were third on the league log with a view of strengthening their squad for the second round of the season.

However, the coronavirus crises in Ghana put a permanent stop to the country’s top and lower flight football.

The 1983 CAF Champions League winners would need reinforcements for Africa especially if they would want to reach group stages of the African Champions League- when they last entered into the money zone back in 2006.

Despite their transfer ban from club’s life patron Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, they have been linked with a couple of players to bolster their squad.

And among many include Emmanuel Keyekeh, Ugandan defender Murushid Juuko and South American prospects.
