Former Asante Kotoko star Ibrahim Sunday has stated that the Porcupine Warriors would need 2 to 3 years if they are to make a significant impact in CAF inter-club competitions.
Sunday revealed this in an interview with Light FM “The long term will need a time of maybe two or three years to prepare the players very well before competing heavily in CAF competitions.”
The who won the CAF Champions League with Kotoko as a player in 1976 and as a coach in 1983 continued “Determination was the key for us in winning the trophy. We had committed and devoted players who even slept on the floor through hunger in achieving this step because this was a trophy which escaped Kotoko for far too long. That’s how I became the African Footballer of the Year onwards.”
Kotoko are set to represent Ghana in the 2020/2021 CAF Champions League and the Porcupine Warriors will be looking to improve upon their first-round elimination in the 2019/2020 season.
Kotoko’s best performance in a continental championship in recent times remains a runners-up finish in the 2004 Confederation Cup following a defeat to country rivals Hearts of Oak.
