Amos Frimpong wants massive support in Kumasi ahead of Coton Sport clash

Asante Kotoko captain Amos Frimpong has called on fans of the club to turn out in their numbers on Sunday in the game against Coton Sports de Garoua in Kumasi.

The Porcupine Warriors host the Cameroonian champions on Sunday in the second leg of the CAFC Confederations Cup play-offs, having already recorded a 3-2 win in Yaounde.

Ahead of the game on Sunday, Frimpong wants massive support from fans who have already been charged to turn Kumasi Red this weekend.

“They have a very good team that can cause havoc in the return leg so we have to be focused to get the job done to perfection,” Amos noted.

“I remember watching a match at the Kumasi Sports Stadium where firefighters had to come in and spray water onto the crowd because it was packed.

“I’m expecting such a crowd on Sunday so that the firefighters will spray water onto the fans once again,” he added.

The Porcupine Warriors need to avoid a two goal deficit defeat to progress to the group stages of the competition, the first time since 2008.
