Board Member of Asante Kotoko, Alhaji Abu Lamin says newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah will decide the club’s participation in the 2020-2021 CAF Champions League.

The two-times African champions have been given the nod to represent Ghana in next season’s CAF Champions League with an aim of improving upon their first-round elimination in 2019-20.

Thie decision emerges after a meeting by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council to end the 2019-20 domestic football season due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

“Nana Yaw will start work on Monday at the club secretariat to assess things and advice the board on Africa,” Alhaji Lamin told Accra based Atinka FM.

“He has not met with the technical team yet and he needs to know the kind of players we have if they are quality enough and the club’s financial status before any decision,” he added.

Kotoko’s best performance in a continental championship in recent times remains a runners-up finish in the 2004 Confederation Cup following a defeat to country rivals Hearts of Oak.

The club’s new 12-member board, set up in June and has been tasked to restore the glory of the old days.
