2018 CAF CONFED. CUP: Amos Frimpong insists Kotoko will crash out CARA in Congo

Published on: 13 February 2018

Asante Kotoko captain, Amos Frimpong has expressed is adamant his side will progress to the next round of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Reds recorded a 1:0 win over Congolese side, CARA at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday in their CAF Confederations Cup campaign in the first league in the preliminary round of the competition.

The FA Cup champions were awarded four penalties but squandered three of them with Yakubu Mohammed coming off the bench to covert a late penalty for his side.

But despite their wastefulness, Frimpong is optimistic they can qualify ahead of the Congolese club.

“We know it won’t be easy but we are ready to go all out and win,” he told Asempa FM.

He also called on the fans to continue supporting the club and promised to make them proud with the help of his teammates.

“I want to tell all Kotoko fans to continue supporting us because we are ready to qualify and make them proud."

The winner of the two-legged tie will then face either Ben Guerdane of Tunisia or Al Hilal Juba of South Sudan in the next round of the competition.

CARA will welcome the Ghanaian giants in the second league of the competition on February 21.
