Asante Kotoko Head Coach Maxwell Konadu has dropped a big hint over his tactical approach facing FC Nouadhibou in the CAF Champions League preliminary round first clash clash on Sunday.
Approaching the match with the aim of getting a favourable result from the Northwestern African country, the former Black Stars B coach says he intends to play an open game and look for goal scoring chances in the match.
The Porcupines face the Mauritanian champions on Sunday, November 29 at the Stade Cheikha Bodiya in Nouakchott at 4:00 PM local time.
When asked about Kotoko’s game-plan, Konadu said: “Technically we say the best way to attack is to possess. We won’t play a defensive game, but if the score-line goes in our favor in the early exchanges, that will also tell you how to operate,” Konadu said in an interview at the team’s hotel.
“Usually, I want to play a game that I won’t concede. But most of the time, you can defend well throughout and concede a last-minute goal.
“I love playing attacking football, whether I am home or away. But if you visit an opponent’s home grounds, you need to be tactful about the way you attack.
“I am not here to play a defensive game. Mark my words. We didn’t come here to defend. We will play and play and play until we get what we want out of this match,” he concluded.
