Former Coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC Steve Pollack has cautioned the club not to rush in competing in Africa next season since they will be faced with challenges following the suspension of the Ghana Premier League.
He argues that playing friendlies currently isn’t enough justification for the Ghanaian giants to boost of a good team to play in next year’s African inter club competitions.
Kotoko SC is pushing to represent Ghana in next season CAF Confederation Cup despite decision by GFA Normalization Committee and in consultation with club owners to pull out of the competition for 2019.
But Pollack who gilded the club to win their last MTN FA Cup title does not see the club performing well in their African campaign with their current team.
“I know Kotoko SC have signed new players and some left after my departure”There are few players who are still at Kotoko”.
“They might think they are ready for competition in Africa, but at the moment you are not playing competitions week after week”, Steve Pollack said to Kumasi FM.
He added that; “So they are not playing a competitive football”Going into a competition especially Africa inter-club it will be difficult”.
“You playing friendlies currently, and they are not competitive enough when going into Africa”, he added.
Kotoko SC won last season MTNFA Cup and by CAF’s regulations, previous clubs that played in the CAF competition, qualifies to represent the mother association in case the league ended abruptly.
