Dauda Mohammed believes Asante Kotoko can reach Confederation Cup final

Former Asante Kotoko striker Dauda Mohammed believes the Porcupine Warriors have what it takes to reach the final of the 2018/19 Caf Confederation Cup.

The Porcupines are in Group C with Sudanese side, Al Hilal, and Zambian duo, Zesco United and Nkana FC.

They will open their account on Sunday night against Al Hilala. However, ahead of the game, Dauda is looking beyond the group stage.

"I wish them good luck, but will entreat them to work very hard since that is the only way they can achieve something from the competition", said the 20-year-old, who just signed a loan deal with Dutch Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem from Belgian top-flight side Anderlecht.

"The players must be focused and organised. The experienced players must guide the new ones. With the quality we have and the kind of management we have now, I believe we can make the final."

"Moreover, I am sure Dr Kwame Kyei and his staff are also working hard to make the players feel comfortable and relaxed to enable them to play their hearts out," he concluded.

The 20-year-old spent a season with Kotoko, scoring eight goals in 20 appearances.
