Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, has challenged the players of Asante Kotoko to win the CAF Champions League next season.
The Porcupine Warriors were voted Africa’s best club of the century by the continent’s regulatory body as a result of their performances.
Nana Yaw Amponsah, Kotoko’s executive officer, and his management, as well as the club’s playing body, were present at the Manhyia Palace to receive the Ghana Premier League trophy for the 2021-22 season.
Otumfuo, speaking through his linguist, congratulated the club on winning the title and urged them to go even further and win the CAF Champions League, stating that while winning the Ghana league is no surprise given the club’s pedigree, winning the African trophy has the potential to bring Kumasi the joy it once had.
“I congratulate you for winning the league title, and now you are travelling to Africa,” the Chief Executive Officer (Nana Yaw Amponsah) told the players. I’ll encourage you to take Africa because it’s been a long time since I’ve held the throne.”
“You must stay together to thrive as a team,” he added.
Kotoko will meet the Accra Lions in their final game of the season on Saturday, June 18 at Accra Sports Stadium.
As previously stated, Kumasi Asante Kotoko, also known as The Porcupines, will represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League season of 2022/23.
