AUG 17, 2023 LISTEN

Remo Stars owner Kunle Soname has admitted beating Medeama SC will be a difficult task.

The Nigerian champions will be hosted by the Ghana Premier League champions on Sunday at the Cape Coast Stadium in the first leg of the preliminary round of the 2023/24 CAF Champions League.

While Soname points out inexperience as the weakness of his opponents compared to other top Ghanaian clubs like Kotoko and Hearts, he acknowledges their strengths admitting that his team can only focus on getting a good result and not necessarily getting a win.

“We didn’t make any special preparations for this game. We will just play our normal game," he told Kumasi-based Akoma FM.

“We will be arriving on Saturday with an airline which is a sponsor of our team. Arriving on Saturday will not affect us because the weather conditions are similar.

“We know the traditional clubs like Kotoko and Hearts but not so much about Medeama just aware they beat Hearts by 5-1 which is quite instructive and also know that they won the league by a 5-point margin.

“We can’t target beating Medeama in Ghana because we know it will be a tough game but all I can expect from my boys is to do well on Sunday.

Medeama will travel the following week to Nigeria for the second leg of the tie at the Remo Star Stadium on Sunday, August 27.
