CAF Confed Cup: I’m not changing my style – Akonnor insists

Asante Kotoko trainer C. K. Akonnor insists he will not change his style of play ahead of his side’s clash with Nkana FC in the CAF Confederation Cup.

According to the coach, the players believe in his style and changing it will not be the best for his team.

The former Dreams FC manager believes the time is too short for him to change what he’s built in so many months especially when his charges are at the war front.

“I have given the boys the believe to possess the ball all the time.

“Sometimes it goes well and sometimes it doesn’t. But, I am not going to change the style of play because they believe in that style and they would do it very well tomorrow.”

“We are already successful in the CAF Confederation Cup because nobody thought we would be here three or four months ago.

“We would improve, and since I am here, I would do my best to improve this team,” Akonnor optimistically told the media at the pre-match presser.

The Porcupine Warriors will host the Zambian giants on Sunday at the Baba Yara Stadium at 16:00GMT.
