AshantiGold SC defender, Eric Donkor says his outfit is not ready to compete in the 2020/21 CAF Confederations Cup next season.

The Miners have been given teh nod to compete in Africa next season after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council cancelled the 2019/20 football season due to coronavirus.

The winners of the Ghana FA Cup, which together with the Premier League (GPL) headlines the topmost affected competitions by the season cancellation, would have represented the country in the Confederation Cup.

“I cannot say that we are ready because we haven’t played for some time now,” Donkor told Bryt FM.

"This year’s competition is still on course which I know they will finish by September. So I’m sure Caf will tell us the way forward after the competition.

“We should wait for them to finish this year’s edition and see how the preparations will go for us because I believe in training and team unity.

“You cannot just make purchases like Messi and Ronaldo thinking that you can do well. Football is a team sport so you have to build a team before you can face your opponent.

“For Ashantigold, I cannot confirm whether we are ready or not but frankly speaking we are not ready," he added.

Joining AshGold in Africa next season are Asante Kotoko who have been confirmed for the Champions League.

The two sides similarly represented Ghana in this season's continental campaign where they both got eliminated in the first round.
