Speaking to the media after the game, Akonnor couldn’t hide his frustration with the result and felt his team missed the chance to qualify to the quarterfinals of the competition.
“Throughout the week, we weren’t ourselves. Honestly, I don’t know what happened but Konte (Bonsu) who has been the been the engine of the team wasn’t himself today.
“We really suffered in the game. It felt like a defeat. Now we have to go to Zambia and win,” he said.
“No Coach would be happy with the results. We kept losing key players in the team. Sometimes it difficult.
“We have to go to Zambia and win whatever the situation. Those who are injured are injured. We have to make do without them,” he added in a frustrated voice.
Asante Kotoko will have to beat Zesco United in a week time to secure their qualification to the quarterfinals of the competition.
