CAF Champions League: Kotoko coach happy with players despite Pillars defeat

Kjetil Zachariassen has insisted he was happy with his Asante Kotoko players despite their loss to Kano Pillars in the CAF Champions League.

The Porcupine Warriors lost narrowly as they succumbed to a 3-2 defeat in the preliminary first round fixture at the Sani Abacha Stadium on Saturday.

From coming back from a goal down, Kotoko sensationally went 2-1 up at a point before the home side raised their game to snatch a dramatic 3-2 victory in the end.

“I am highly elated with my team’s performance because one thing here is that we played against a good team and we scored two important away goals which will be very important for us,” he said.

“We will correct our mistakes before the return leg in Kumasi.”

The return fixture is set for Kumasi's Baba Yara Sports Stadium on August 25.
