Executive chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko,Dr. Kwame Kyei Baffour has expressed his profound gratitude to the thousands of teeming supporters who thronged the Baba Yara Stadium Sunday to support the team to victory over Etoile du sahel.

In an interview with Kumasi based Light FM, the bank roller of the club touched on a number of key issues among them been his personal involvment in the new ticket project which sees the club print and sell tickets well in advance of games with these tickets containing high end security features.

He also touched on the team victory over North African giants Etoile Sportive du Sahel and the quest to ensure the team progresses into the group stage and beyond.

The executive chairman also deliberated on the stalled Adako Jachie training complex project and how he wants that done in earnest.

The Chairman of the Porcupine Warriors this morning expressed his utmost gratitude to God and the Kotoko fraternity for their untiring support as his side triumphed over Tunisian side Etoile Sportive Du Sahel yesterday.

Victory Over Etoile Du Sahel
" First of all, i want to thank God for all the happenings. You cannot exclude God from your dealings, he has brought us this far and we are grateful to him. This is the initial stages of Gods' glory in the life of Asante Kotoko. Even if we had lost yesterday, i still would have ultimately given thanks to him.
You all saw the reactions from them (Etoile), delaying from all angles, deliberately slowing the flow of the game but what God has said is final."

New Ticketing Structure
"I personally got involved in the redefinition of the tickets. So many racketeering has gone on within the past years and this time we didn't want it to happen again. We issued out 36,000 tickets and accumulated $120,000.00 thus GH 650,000.00 as gross income."

Players Performance
"I wasn't surprised at all about the performance from my lads. We have invested so much which most people don't understand but when it reaches a certain stage , they will come to the realization of it's fruitfulness."

Second Leg Fixture in Tunisia
"What happened is not by fluke but by hardwork and discipline, I believe we will have a resounding victory in Tunisia. Nothing is impossible under the Lord, and where all hope is lost is where he shows himself strong."

Adako Jachie Project
"It's a project which is very important and dear to my heart. I cannot be doing it alone, i need the supporters involvement. As a leader, when you take a right step, certainly your subordinates will follow so i am expecting much from them."

The Untiring Supporters
"I want to extremely thank them for accepting this team and ultimately canvassing their support for the club whether rain or shine. The level of Kotoko right now solely depends on them. We still have an unfinished business so they should keep supporting and praying for the club."
