CAF Champions League: Kotoko Can Eliminate Kano Pillars - CK Akunnor
LISTEN AUG 20, 2019

Former Asante Kotoko trainer, CK Akunnor has backed his former side to overcome Kano Pillars in the CAF Champions League.

The Ghana Premier League giants will host the Nigerian side at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the second leg fixture on Sunday, having lost the first leg 3-2 in Kano.

But Akonnor, believes the Porcupine Warriors have a better chance of progressing to the next stage of the competition.

“They did well in the first leg, two goals at this stage and in this competition is gold. A 1-0 win on Sunday will even be good for them to progress and I honestly think they have a better chance of going through,” Akonnor told Joy Sports.

The former Ashgold and Dreams FC gaffer guided Kotoko to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup and won them the Normalisation Committee Special Competition Tier I.

He, however, left the club after he was made technical director following the appointment of Kjetil Zachariassen as head coach.

The aggregate winners of the Kotoko-Pillars tie will secure passage to face Hafia FC of Guinea or Tunisian club Etoile du Sahel in the second round of qualifying.
