Asante Kotoko have no quality, we will beat them - Kotoku Royals PRO Okatakyie Afrifa

Published on: 26 January 2023

Communications Director of Kotoku Royals, Okatakyie Afrifa says his side will beat Asante Kotoko on Sunday.

The debutants will be hosted at the Baba Yara Stadium in the matchday 14 games this weekend.

Kotoko ended their winless run after recording a 2-1 win against Benab FC in the MTN FA Cup over the weekend.

The Porcupine Warriors were on a winless in their last four league matches after recording drawn games against Bibiani Gold Stars, Tamale City, Great Olympics and Aduana Stars.

Kotoku Royals is a relegation-threatened side as they sit bottom of the league table after 13 matches with only 7 points.

Despite the string of poor results, Okatakyie Afrifa, says his side is poised to upset Kotoko in front of their home crowd by picking the three maximum points.

“Kotoku Royals have maximum respect for Asante Kotoko, we know them as our senior brothers," he told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.

“But Kotoku Royals are coming all out. Looking at the standings now, we can’t afford to lose this particular game so we are doing everything possible to come to Kumasi on Sunday to pick all the maximum three points against Asante Kotoko,” he stated.

He also said Kotoko do not have the quality to triumph over his side, which makes him confident they will carry the day.

“We have seen Kotoko play and we have a lot of videos of them and we have realized that they don’t have any quality in the game.

“The only thing is that the name Kotoko is popular everywhere but when it comes to the quality of the players, we Kotoku Royals also have the same players.

“We believe that Kotoko is a beatable side and we have all the confidence that we can beat them on Sunday,” he concluded.

The game has been scheduled to kick off at 18:00GMT.
