Avoid complacency against Kano Pillars - George Amoako tells Kotoko players

Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako has warned the playing body to eschew complacency ahead of their CAF Champions League second leg clash against Kano Pillars.

The Porcupine Warriors suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat to the Nigerian club.

However, with two away goals from the first leg, the Reds are confident of progress to the next stage.

“It is a very good scoreline,” Mr. Amoako told “Playing in Kano, scoring two away goals and losing 3-2, puts us in a pole position to qualify, but we don’t need to be complacent” he cautioned.

“[We] certainly wouldn’t be because they are a good side, very aggressive, very strong and we need to work at it to get the results. I am talking about qualification. We would do everything possible to ensure just that. With this scoreline away; difference one with two away goals, qualification is more likely” he assured.

“We have to be able to swim with it. We are fully aware that situations like this could cause some complacency, but the assurance is that, we wouldn’t give that any chance. We are focused and going to treat the second leg like the score was goalless” he stressed.
