Amos Frimpong, a former Asante Kotoko skpper has called on the club to consider playing in Africa next season.
The Porcupine Warriors have been given the nod to participate in the 2020/21 Caf Champions League by the Ghana Football Association [GFA] Executive Council.
However, the club is yet to officially announce their participation in the tournament.
Some section of the supporters have questioned the squad depth of the squad with some citing that the club should boycott participating in the competition.
But according to Frimpong, the club's participation could be a blessing in disguise for the team.
"Such decisions are normally taken by the board of directors, management and technical term," he told Kumasi based Hello FM.
"Using coach CK Akonnor's era where we were not active, the management took a bold decision for us to represent Ghana. We even exceeded our target by qualifying for the group stage.
"When we play in Africa, it raises the value of the players where some even get better offers for the club to earn something.
"So if the board decides to allow the team to take the opportunity, it is good," he concluded.
