Medeama defender Samuel Adade is disappointed with the side’s failure to progress to the group phase of the CAF Confederation Cup.

The ambitious Ghanaian side saw their fairly tale story crushing in front of their own fans after losing 5-4 on penalties to AC Leopards.

The Mauve and Yellows managed to cancel out their 2-0 deficit from the first leg but were not lucky during the lottery of penalty at the Essipong stadium.

The painful exit has left many disappointed as they were highly tipped to make the money zone following a fabulous run in the competition.

The right-back expressed his disappointment over the side’s inability to make the final eight.

“It’s a real disappointment. We have not recovered from the setback,” he told

“We were really determined to qualify to the group stage and gave our all. But I guess we were unlucky during the penalty soot-out.

“The whole team is down. We had come so close and to see that your effort won’t land you in the group phase is very painful.

“It’s indeed a bitter pill to swallow.”

The Tarkwa-based side will turn their attention on the domestic scene after crashing out of the competition.
