Former Asante Kotoko forward Eric Bekoe says the club is not ready for next season’s CAF Champions League competition.
The Porcupine Warriors has confirmed their participation in the 2020/21 CAF Champions League which kicks off in November.
Kotoko has not been in action since March this year following the suspension of football activities by the government due to the coronavirus outbreak in the West African country.
The team also recently appointed a new Board led by Executive Chairman Dr Kwame Kyei, followed by the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer of the club Nana Yaw Amponsah.
Eric Bekoe said that the club at this period should concentrate on building its structures and prepare well ahead of the new season instead of participating in Africa which they are not ready.
“I thought this was the time they will take time and put their house in order before going to Africa. Going to Africa is a trap but we hope everything goes well. In my opinion, they should have pulled out of this year’s competition and prepare well for the next one", he said in an interview.
Asante Kotoko is set to commence training today ahead of the league start in November.
The team will also begin their CAF Champions League campaign in November.
