Asante Kotoko have been demoted to the CAF Confederation Cup after losing out to Tunisian side, Etolie du Sahel in the CAF Champions League.

The demotion comes after the Porcupine Warriors suffered elimination from the Final qualifying stage of the CAF Champions League after a 3-0 defeat to ten-man Etoile du Sahel side on Sunday in Monastir.

Kotoko got evicted from the continent's flagship inter-clubs competition after an aggregate 3-2 defeat to the Tunisians.

The Ghanaian club wanted to rewrite history by qualifying to the next round of the CAF Champions League after a 12-years wait.

The Porcupine Warriors return to the competition after an impressive run in the CAF Confederation Cup last year where they reached the Group Stages.

Kotoko failed to go past the Group Stages after placing 3rd in the group under former coach CK AKonnor.

Kotoko's regional rivals, Ashantigold were knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday by RS Berkane.

This leaves Kotoko as Ghana’s only rep in continental football this season.
