Asante Kotoko target Champions League group stage

The chairman of the Asante Kotoko Africa Campaign Committee Alhaji Abu Lamini says the club’s the short term target is to reach the  group stage of the CAF Champions League.

The Ghana Premier League champions have set a long-term target of winning the 2014 CAF Champions League.

Kotoko begin their campaign against Liberian champions BYC on 9 February at the Baba Yara Stadium in the first qualifying round first leg tie.

“Our target, obviously, is to win the trophy. The cup has eluded Kotoko for too long and we have resolved to win it now. But, we first want to enter the money zone, then we take it up from there,” Lamini told reporters.

Kotoko were eliminated from last year’s competition at the penultimate qualifying round by Algerian side JSM Bejaia.

The two-time African champions last reached the money zone in 2006 where they finished third in Group A behind CS Sfaxien and Al Ahly.

    Did I hear them saying they wanna win the CCL? Lol 4 der wer? With those average & mediocre players that you have your best will be the money zone. I see another Bejaia disaster looming once again, to be very honest I don't see any Ghanaian winning the CCL now. Maybe in 2,3 yrs time.

    I dont remember reading an article than berekum chelsea said they were going to make it to the group stage even with the talent they had. Kotoko lack half of the talent Berekum team had and are putting pressure on themselves.....which ii amount to nothing, an unknown algerian team knock u out the last time out should be thinking about exceeding that not way past ur ability to disappoint ur fans again. buy buy to achieve that.
