Kano Pillars head coach Ibrahim Musa says his side’s are not afraid of Asante Kotoko and will kick them out of the CAF Champions League.
The Nigerian club will host the Porcupine Warriors on August 10th in Kano in the first leg of the 2019/2020 CAF Champions league preliminary stage before traveling to Kumasi later for the reverse leg.
According to Musa, the Porcupine Warriors are only relying on past glories and he will stop them from progressing to the next phase of the competition.
“Our objective in this season’s Champions League is to win the title.”
“We are preparing very well because we are going to meet a great team in Ghana,” Musa further stated in an interview with Kumasi -based Oyerepa FM.
“We are not scared of Kotoko, what you bring presently is more important than success achieved years ago. We are going to do our best, we have a brighter chance of eliminating Asante Kotoko,” he noted.
Pillars are set to host the first leg on the weekend of June 9, 10 and 11 before travelling away for the return fixture two weeks later.
Masu Gida’s best performance in the competition remains a semi-final finish in 2009.
