Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s goal poacher Saddick Adams has said his outfit is poised to make history in Africa this season despite a shaky start to their Confederation Cup campaign.
Saddick Adams in the Porcupine Worries Africa Confederations Cup game last Sunday missed a penalty kick and refused to go in for the bunger to redeem himself the mess caused when he’s team was awarded its second penalty of the day.
He says it was due to personal issue which made him not to take the second penalty.
According to him, the fabulous lads heavily criticized Sunday game happens to be one of the club’s best performances in ages, having had team CEO Dr. Kwame Kyei and a host of dignitaries trooping into the dressing room after the game to congratulate the entire playing body for their wonderful display.
“The team is poised to make history in Africa this season,” Saddick told Accra based Vision 1 FM.
“Missing a penalty yesterday l must confess l felt really bad but can’t say much because it forms part of the game.
“Sometimes as a player you scores but a times it turns to be the other way round, which is normal to every player like myself.
“But to be honest l wasn’t down at all throughout the game even though l had wasted a crucial chance. l still put up my best which finally paid-off in Yakubu Mohammed getting the team’s winner after a wonderfully executed penalty kick in the dying embers of the game.
“The team on the day was splashed with mere hard luck. If not for that CARA in anyway couldn’t stand the mighty efforts of Asante Kotoko ,” he noted.
When asked how prepared the team is going into the return leg in Congo the striker said “we [Kotoko] go into every game as a team set to develop a winning mentality and our Confederations Cup second-leg game with CARA is no exception.
“As we’re in to rewrite the name Kotoko back to the good books of the African Confederations Cup,” he continued.
