Kotoko should prepare for the worst from CARA - George Afriyie

Vice President of the Ghana Football Association, George Afriyie says Kumasi Asante Kotoko must prepare themselves for intimidation from Congolese side CARA Brazzaville.

The Ghanaian giants will travel to Congo for the second leg of the preliminary round of the CAF Confederations Cup, after beating CARA 1-0 in Kumasi.

Kotoko were awarded four penalties in the game against CARA but failed to capitalize and scored only one from the four.

Meanwhile, Vice President of the Ghana Football Association has sounded a word of caution Kumasi Asante Kotoko insisting, the Congolese side will intimidate them.

"Anyone who says CARA will not intimidate Kotoko is telling lies, the Congolese national team came to play in Kumasi and we treated them well," Afriyie told Asempa FM.

"When we went for the return leg, we stood at the airport for close to three hours and they delayed as without any proper reason."

"With even the behaviour they [CARA] put up in Kumasi should give Kotoko an idea, so they should prepare for the worst."

Kotoko will face Club Athletique Rennaissance De Aiglon (CARA) in a fortnight time.
