Asante Kotoko were eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup at the play-off stage by ES Setif on Sunday following a 2-1 aggregate victory for the Algerian side.
The Porcupine Warriors did not win a single game in Africa this season – losing two games and drawing the other two. The team scored 2 goals and conceded four times.
The team entered the Champions League at the preliminary round where they were paired against FC Nouadhibou of Mauritania. The first leg ended 1-1 in Mauritania as the Ghanaian team – then coached by Maxwell Konadu won a walkover during the second leg in Accra. Nouadhibou lost the game after failing to raise the minimum number of players for the encounter as two of their players tested positive for Covid-19.
The qualification saw Kotoko paired against Al-Hilal of Sudan. The Sudanese were 1-0 winners over Kotoko and during the second leg in Omdurman they secured qualification without the match being played as Kotoko suffered the same fate that fell on FC Nouadhibou.
Having dropped to the CAF Confederation Cup the Ghanaian representatives were expected to do better but that would not be the case as ES Setif won 2-1 in Accra and drew the other leg 0-0 to advance to the group stages meaning as a matter of fact Asante Kotoko never won a game in Africa this season.
