The Porcupine Warriors chief is optimistic that they will end their run without a continental silverware this season as they participate in the Caf inter-club competition
Asante Kotoko communications director Sarfo Duku Esq has insisted that they have the men to win the 2018-19 Caf Confederation Cup trophy, amid concerns raised about their preparedness.
In their last three participations in the competition, they have been knocked out in the first round by relatively smaller clubs but Sarfo is optimistic that they will change the narratives by annexing the title under new coach C.K Akonnor.
“I can now confirm that 26 players which is made up of 11 new signings and 15 old players have been sent to Caf and they will be defending the club to win the [Caf Confederation Cup] trophy,” he told Abusua FM.
“Of course, whenever you participate in any competition, your target should be the ultimate [so we’re going to win it and not just to participate],” he added.
Kotoko, who won the Caf Champions League in 1983, were booted from the competition in the first round by CARA Brazzaville as the Congolese club went on to reach the quarterfinals.
They will begin this season’s edition at the same stage and could possibly travel to North Africa or Eastern Africa.
