Former Black Starlets head coach, Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin has cautioned Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold SC not to participate in the 2020/21 Caf inter-club competition.

Kotoko and Ashgold have been given the go-ahead by the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association following the cancellation of the 2019-20 Ghana Football season due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

However, the Miners have confirmed they will participate in the Caf Confederations Cup with Asante Kotoko yet to confirm their participation in teh Caf Champions League.

The two clubs were selected by virtue of winning the previously held GFA’s Normalisation Committee Special competitions.

Asante Kotoko won the NC Special Competition Tier 1 and as a result booked a ticket to enter the CAF Champions League back then while Ashantigold also won the Tier 2 competition and by virtue of that competed in the Confederation Cup.

The two clubs subsequently failed to make the necessary impact by failing to qualify for the Group Stages.

According to Paa Kwesi Fabin, the occurrences in the recent past should be enough a deterrent for Ghanaian clubs and their Africa ambitions.

“In my honest opinion, no Ghanaian club should go to Africa looking at the happenings in our games for the past years,” the Aduana Stars gaffer told Kumasi based Pure FM.
