Aduana Stars forward Yahaya Mohammed is disgusted by the decision to name Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold as Ghana's representatives in the CAF inter-club competitions.

The nation's football governing body has announced the current campaign will be rendered null and void following uncertainty over the coronavirus shutdown.

Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold have been chosen as the country's representatives for the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederations Cup respectively after the 2019-2020 Ghana Premier League was cancelled.

But the decision has not gone down well with Aduana Stars live-wire, Yahaya Mohammed, who has questioned the reason behind the decision, saying that his outfit and Medeama SC deserve the nod ahead of the two chosen clubs.

“I don’t have a problem with the 2 clubs that have been selected to represent Ghana in the Champions league and Confederation Cup. However, are these two clubs ready to go and lift the flag of Ghana high?” He quizzed.

“In fact at the moment no GPL club is ready for Africa. The FA would have to select the top 18 players in the GPL to represent Ghana in those competitions” he suggested on Angel 102.9FM.

He preferred another alternative to ensure Ghana’s reps perform well on the continent.

“Based on the preparation of clubs Aduana and Medeama should have the nod to represent Ghana. Those teams are very well prepared” he ended.
