Asante Kotoko eye international friendly against an unnamed Spanish top flight side

Asante Kotoko claim they are on the verge of securing an international friendly match against an unnamed Spanish top flight club as part of their pre-season preparations.

The Premier League champions were supposed to have traveled to Spain for a training tour ahead of the commencement of the new football season.

That arrangement however appear to have been botched with coach Mas-Ud Dramani raising an alarm over their packed program ahead of the tentative date set for the start of the Premier League season.

The club have now revealed plans to fly in ‘a reputable Spanish La Liga side’ for a friendly match before their home crowd at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

“The club is also on the verge of signing a deal that will bring a reputable Spanish La Liga side to Kumasi Baba Yara Sports Stadium for an International friendly at a set date,” according to a press statement signed by Kotoko’s General Manager Opoku Nti.

Last season’s double winners want to ensure their team is adequately prepared ahead of their fourth successive defence of their Premier League crown.

They Ghanaian giants also want to improve their form in the CAF Champions League significantly.

    I like this Kotoko kit it's almost the same as that of the Great Kaizer Chiefs in S.A....if u care to check it. as for the story it's a clear fiction. La liga is starting in a weeks time. how can they come there,with added threat of Ebola in Northern Africa Europeans are not even thinking of visiting Africa.

    What a champion in lies. oh opoku Inti or wats his name self? common a proper pre-seasson u can't organised for the boys, haba why??? The board of kotoko of yesterday that we know is not the Same as this Inti board. there for I wouldn't advice any young talent to go to the club as it may be a waste of time and talent. even player's salary you can't pay it proper. #Godsaveus
