CAF Champions League: Kwesi Appiah tips Kotoko to beat Kano Pillars

Asante Kotoko legend and Black Stars head coach, James Kwesi Appiah has expressed optimism the Porcupines would progress when they face Nigerian side, Kano Pillars in the 2019/20 CAF Champions League.

The former Kotoko captain told Kotoko Express App that, no one has his job secured at the club as there could be changes at any given time.

However, those who have the opportunity now should make the best use of it and achieve the club’s target, he stated.

“In Kotoko, apart from Otumfuo who is irreplaceable, anyone can be replaced at anytime, whether as a player or an administrator. The most important thing is making good use of the opportunity given to you. Going the extra mile in the interest of the club,” said the coach.

“On the game itself, I think playing away against an opponent you don’t know much about is always good. They will be under pressure to perform and I am one hundred percent sure that, [with determination], we can progress”.

“The most important thing is our mentality which should not be focused too much on defending though we are playing away but rather attack and frustrate them” he ended.

Appiah, a left-back, spent ten seasons at Asante Kotoko, between 1983 and 1993 and winning more laurels with the Reds between this period.
