Former Asante Kotoko midfielder Michael Akuffo believes the club have the required materials to rule Africa next year.

Asante Kotoko will represent the nation in the CAF Champions League after coronavirus crisis forced the truncation of the 2019/2020 domestic football.

But a section of their supporters believe the club will not make an impact in the competition hence they should pull out and channel their focus on the domestic league.

However, Akuffo, who won three Premier League titles with the Porcupine Warriors, insists the club have enough quality to play in Africa next season.

“It is highly possible Kotoko can represent Ghana in Caf Champions League looking at the players and the pedigree of Maxwell Konadu.”

“Konadu was the coach that led us to win the Ghana Premier League in 2012 and he has a lot of technical qualities.”

“It is a matter of psyching the players and they also believe in themselves that the Caf Champions League is not beyond our reach.”

“Every generation has its kind of players and the current squad is made of some quality ones so Kotoko can play well in Africa.”

“The players must give their best so ensure Kotoko is represented well in Africa,” Akuffo told Akoma FM.

Michael Akuffo last joined Kumasi-based Ghana Premier League side, King Faisal, on a season’s deal.
