My players are gifted enough to beat RS Berkane - Ashantigold coach

Ashantigold gaffer Ricardo da Rocha says he has tactically and technically gifted players to beat Moroccan side RS Berkane in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The Miners will face last year's finalist in the second round of the competition after eliminating Equatoguinean side Akonangui FC in the preliminary stage.

Ricardo da Rocha says his players are aware of the threat posed by the North Africans but they are very prepared for the big game.

“We are aware of the threat pose by Berkane and what they managed to achieve last season, reaching the final of the competition on their debut,” he said.

“I know how dangerous they are at home and how good they can be on their travels on their day and my boys are very well prepared and ready for such a big game because we always train for such a big occasion.

“I have a lot of tactical discipline and technically gifted players which make me feel good about the match and I believe that my boys will face them squarely on the day,” Da Rocha added.

The Obuasi based lads will host RS Berkane in the first leg at the Len Clay stadium on September 14 before travelling to Morocco for the return leg.
