The former African Footballer of the Year Abdul Razak has blamed Asante Kotokoâ€™s exit in the CAF Champions League to the timing of the CHAN tournament.
The Porcupine Warriors contributed Eight players to the local Black Stars which finished second in South Africa some months ago.
Kotoko coach Mas-Ud Dramani prepared for the Champions League encounter against BYC without the core of his team who were at the tournament.
Razak, nicknamed the Golden Boy, says the CHAN tournament disrupted Kotoko.
"The coach had less than four days to integrate his players into his team after they returned from the CHAN tournament,â€ the Kotoko legend said.
"The timing for me let Kotoko down if the coach had all his players with him in Akosombo am sure the results would have been different.
"Now the important thing is to concentrate on the competitions that they have left.â€
The champions sit summit of the league table with four points advantage and a game in hand
