Asante Kotoko assistant coach Akakpo Patron has praised his players for their amazing performance in their game against Coton Sport on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors shockingly defeated Coton Sport 3-2 at the Military Stadium in Garoua on Sunday in a game they could have won more.
Two goals from Daouda Kamilou (penalty), Gueme Araina for Coton Sport; and three by Kotoko’s Emmanuel Gyamfi, Maxwell Baakoh, Abdul Fatawu have now put the Ghanaian club in good position to make it to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.
Coach Patron was full of praise for the players after impressing and ultimately getting a win away from home.
“The players we were ready to outplay themselves whenever the opportunity is given. I am very impressed with the performance of the players. They played according to the instructions we gave them,” he told Happy FM.
“All Kotoko players will get their chance to play for the team. No player should feel left out of this celebration.”
The second leg will come off on Sunday, January 20, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
