Kotoko suffer shock elimination from Champs League by Liberian minnows BYC

Asante Kotoko

Liberian minnows Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) shockingly eliminated Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko out of the CAF Champions League following a vital 1-0 win for the home side  in Monrovia on Sunday.

An 85th minute strike by Blamo Nimley was just enough to send the Liberian club through on the away goal rule .

Kotoko were unable to protect their slim 2-1 advantage carried into the return leg match in Monrovia and were sent packing 3-2 on aggregate.

Mas-Ud Dramani’s team held their own for most parts of the game only to lose it in the final minutes of the game.

The Ghanaian giants have now failed to make it to the group stage of the CAF Champions League for two successive seasons they have won the domestic championship.

    Maxwell, you're too known.Your words clearly show you know nothing about football.It's only the name Hearts Of Oak that you know.What Kotoko has achieved, it will take Heart years before reaching there.Now your so called team even struggle to qualify to any caf organized competition and you're here making noise,throwing dust into the eyes of people.Go and sleep let those who know the game talk.

    Kotoko players Underestimated their opponents from Liberia and that's the reason for their downfall. Hopefully they would take their opponents seriously next time.

    Faaaabrim!!! Hahahaha!! A mediocre club that likes over hyping its mediocre players, a couple of months ago there were making lotta noises that were gonna conquer Africa blablabla I laugh my ass off and was like are these negros outta their freaking minds? How the **** can you conquer Africa with this set of average players, I predicted that their best will be the second round buh it proved to be even worse. Hearts Of Oak is the only Ghanaian that can conquer Africa and make GH proud. The first & Only Ghanaian club to win the CCL in its new format, the first and only Ghanaian club to win the Caf Super Cup, the first African club to win the maiden edition of the Caf Confederations Cup (Virgin Cup), the first and only African club to be ranked among the top 8 clubs in the world by CNN. A feat that hasn't been matched up till date, its no wonder that we're known as the Continental Club Masters. We're Famous Hearts Of Oak, we truly never say die until the bones are rotten!!

    Kotoko should not be an impediment for Accra Hearts of Oak. Hearts would definitely qualify from the group stage.

    You should watch Sunzu teaching headless chicken Jordan Ayew how to score at Sochaux.

    Ghanaman, I hope you are not referring to my BYC of Liberia as an amateur team, I strongly want to tell you that Ghanaian teams like Kotoko are amateur than professional because a professional will never under estimate his opponent in anyway.

    @Ghanaian,lol. Lfmao! Dawg are you high on drugs or sumtin? Gh's best team in what context? FYI Hearts Of Oak is the most successful Ghanaian club in terms of overall trophy haul, we've won most trophies than any other club in the country both domestic and on the continental scene. Your team fabu can only bribe referees to win the league that's how come they can perform in Africa, dude don't bring yourself kraaa!!
