The Porcupine Warriors head of communications believes that his side’s have what it takes to finally end their run without a continental title this season as they participate in the Caf inter-club competition.
Though a session of Ghanaians have questioned the club’s preparedness for Africa this season having been kicked out in the early stage of their previous campaign, Sarfo Duku Esq insists they are more than ready to represent Ghana, adding they have the men capable of achieving that feat.
In their last three participations in the competition, they have been knocked out in the first round by relatively smaller clubs but Sarfo is optimistic that they will change the narratives by annexing the title under new coach C.K Akonnor.
“I can now confirm that 26 players which is made up of 11 new signings and 15 old players have been sent to Caf and they will be defending the club to win the [Caf Confederation Cup] trophy,” he told Kumasi Abusua FM.
“Of course, whenever you participate in any competition, your target should be the ultimate [so we’re going to win it and not just to participate],” he added.
Kotoko, who won the Caf Champions League in 1983, were booted from the competition in the first round by CARA Brazzaville as the Congolese club went on to reach the quarterfinals.
The Ghanaian giants are yet to know their opponent for their first fixture with the competition kicking off next month.
