Asante Kotoko to blow $195,000 in first away game of Caf Champions League


The Porcupine Warriors are reportedly planning to go to Mauritania with a chartered flight for their away game in the preliminary round of the Caf Champions League

Asante Kotoko management led by chief executive officer Nana Yaw Amponsah has presented a budget of $195,000 to the board of directors for their first game in the 2020/21 Caf Champions League, understands.

The Porcupine Warriors have been paired with Mauritanian giants FC Nouadhibou in the preliminary round of the competition and would travel to the Southern African country this weekend.

According to our checks, Kotoko are hoping to travel with a 30-man contingent which will include 18 players, technical team, medical team and management team members.

Due to Coronavirus disease, which has hit every part of the world, Kotoko’s plan is to use Ghana’s air force plane for their trip and the budget includes their hotel, food and other miscellaneous.

According to reports in the local media, Kotoko may be without goalkeeper and captain Felix Annan who picked a knee injury in their game against Berekum Chelsea on Sunday since he would have to pass late fitness test.

This means that they will travel with Kwame Baah and Danlad Ibrahim as the second choice goalkeeper since Razak Abalora is also yet to recover from COVID-19 he picked up while on international duties with Ghana last week if the situation doesn’t change.

Maxwell Konadu has come under increasing pressure to at least pick a draw in this game since his side has had a slow start to the Ghana Premier League this season. They have picked two draws after two games in the top-flight.
