CAF CC: Asante Kotoko SC Shot Stopper Felix Annan Optimistic Of Maximum Points Ahead of ZESCO United Clash

Asante Kotoko SC custodian is confident his self motivated team will turn the pressure from their teaming fan base into motivation when they host Zambian side ZESCO United at the Baba Yara stadium.

The Ghanaian shot stopper accepted the pressure piled on his side by their unforgiving fans but remains optimistic the three contested points will remain in Ghana.

Felix Annan, whose top class saves played crucial role in the qualification campaign tasked his teammates to accept the pressure in a positive manner and use the three points to kick off their continental ambitions after the painful 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sudanese giants Al Hilal Omdurman.

“Pressure is bound to happen in everything you do. We know the fans expectation of us is very high. It’s normal to feel pressure from the fans but we don’t have to play under pressure,” Felix Annan told Graphic Sports.

“We will deal with it as it is and turn it into a positive outcome. What we have to do as a team is to absorb the pressure and react in a positive manner. The pressure should rather be a motivation for us to deliver and we are very confident that we are going to win,” he concluded.

Asante Kotoko SC played some top class football en route to sealing a place in the last 16 stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.
