Former Asante Kotoko captain Amos Frimpong says the team exhibited a poor performance against Al Hilal in the first leg of the first round of the CAF Champions League.
The Porcupine Warriors suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Sudanese giants at the Accra Sports Stadium on Wednesday in the first leg.
Hilal got the breakthrough goal in the 77th minute with Bongoga scoring with a cool finish following a fine pass by Mohammed Ouattara.
Kotoko showed a lackluster performance and were poor in the game leading to agitations from the fans after the game.
According to Amos Frimpong, the performance of the team was poor on the day compared to that against Dreams FC in the Ghana Premier League.
“The performance of the players was down compared to that of the Dreams FC game”, he told Happy FM.
“It wasn’t a bad performance though. After winning against Dreams we were thinking the players will head into the game with that motivation”
“There is still more room for improvement, we should throw our support behind the team ahead of the second leg.
Amos Frimpong called on the supporters and management to find a way to motivate the team ahead of the second leg”.
“We should all contribute to help the team find a way to qualify. The management should find a way to motivate the players and not kill their motivation”
Asante Kotoko travel to Omdurman for the second leg on January 5, 2021.
