CAF Confed Cup: I will do everything to make Kotoko qualify for quarter-finals -George Afriyie

Okyeman Planners life patron, George Akwasi Afriyie says he is ready to do everything to ensure Asante Kotoko progress in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Asante Kotoko must beat Zesco United in Zambia in the final Group C game on Sunday to progress to the quarterfinals of the ongoing competition after failing to beat Al Hilal in their final home game.

However, ahead of the match, the former Ghana FA vice president says he is ready to do anything to ensure the Ghana Premier League giants qualifies for the quarterfinals.

“Some of us have been working on the low, I have been doing my best to help Kotoko excel in Africa,” he told Atinka FM.

“It is usually not out but I have been playing a key part and I will continue that in Zambia, I will be leaving for Zambia to prepare the grounds for Kotoko.

“I will do everything within my power to help Kotoko qualify to the next stage and that is exactly why I am leaving for Zambia.

“I was with the team throughout their matches in Kumasi, and I think this is the time they need the support of some of us.”

Kotoko left for Zambia on Wednesday with an 18-man squad which excluded talisman Songne Yacouba who has been suspended from the game.

Anything short of victory in Zambia will see the Ghanaian giants crash out of the competition.
