CAF CONFED CUP: Asante Kotoko coach CK Akunnor sure of qualification over Kariobangi Sharks

Asante Kotoko head coach CK Akunnor is optimistic his side will qualify to the next stage of the CAF Confederation Cup after their goalless score line with Kariobangi Sharks at the Kasarani Stadium in Kenya on Saturday.

The Porcupine Warriors will welcome the Sharks at the Baba Yara Stadium in the return leg of the encounter on Saturday 22nd December, and coach Akunnor is sure of victory over the visitors.

Speaking to the Asante Kotoko’s official website, Akunnor said his target is to qualify to the next stage and he is optimistic of that.

“I don’t want to be too selfish. This was an away match. We have to go back home, do a bit of homework and find a method to win the second leg,” he said after the game in Kenya.

“We are not going to relax”, stressed Akonnor.

“The target is to qualify for the next stage and we are going to work hard to achieve that,” he added.

Kariobangi Sharks qualified for this round with a 9-2 goal aggregate win over Djibouti’s Alter Solar, and though Akonnor admits that they are a solid side, the coach insists he knows how to eliminate them.

“The last time they played here, it was a 6-1 win. It’s a team that has known each other for a long time. Tactically, we were disciplined. They played to their strength. What they did today was all they could give because we also made it difficult for them. I know what to do win in Ghana.”
