Editor of Kotoko Express, Jerome Otchere has slammed Don Bortey for claiming he can guide the Porcupine Warriors to win African titles.

Jerome's comment comes after the former Hearts of Oak midfielder in an interview with Accra based Hot FM reiterated that he has what it takes to end Kotoko’s trophy drought at the continental level.

“Kotoko’s CAF Continental trophy droughts can be solved by me if I become a coach. I am ever ready to coach Kotoko and I can win Africa for Kotoko,” Bortey said.

“Kotoko has a good strong squad for Ghana Premier League but they have to buy players outside Ghana to blend the players for them to able to succeed in Africa,” he added.

However, Jerome took to his Twitter to question the statement made by Bortey.

According to him, it is his former side, Hearts of Oak, who need help to end their 11 years trophy drought and not Kotoko.

"He actually meant his former club, @HeartsOfOakGH so he could help them win a silverware for the first time in nearly a decade," Jerome said.

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko are searching for a continental title since winning the Africa Inter-Club Competition (now CAF Champions League) in 1983 and in between they have lost three continental finals 1993, 2002 and 2004).

The Porcupine Warriors came close in 2004 but lost to the Confederations Cup to sworn rivals, Hearts of Oak.

Kotoko, who are two times champions of Africa, will represent Ghana in the 2020/21 CAF Champions League.
