The two West African candidates for the 2020-21 CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup have become rife due to the unlikelihood of the completion of the current season due to coronavirus disruption.
“It will be very difficult for Kotoko and AshantiGold to make a meaningful impact because they won’t get time to prepare for the competition."
"It is difficult to speak the truth in this country. Some years back I advised Kotoko reject Africa and use the money for infrastructural development so they can venture into Africa in the following but didn’t mind me"
“So if the opportunity has come again for them to go and the supporters are backing them we have to also support it. But I think they just want to go and take part and come back because looking at their competitors like TP Mazembe, Al Ahly and others they are well prepared and their league is ongoing” Coach Sarpong told SilverSports.
The two clubs confirmed their participation in next season’s CAF Inter Club competitions last week as Kotoko will play in Champions League while AshantiGold SC will participate in Confederation Cup.
The 2019-20 Ghana Premier League and FA Cup have been on hold since March 15 when a ban on public gatherings came into force and it is presently uncertain when football will return.
