Asante Kotoko to play in CAF Confederations Cup

Published on: 29 September 2019

Asante Kotoko have been demoted to the CAF Confederations Cup after losing out to Tunisian side, Etolie du Sahel in the CAF Champions League.

The demotion comes after the Porcupines suffered elimination from the Group stage of the CAF Champions League after a 3-0 defeat a ten-man Etoile du Sahel side on Sunday in Monastir.

Kotoko got evicted from the continent's flagship inter-clubs competition after an aggregate 3-2 defeat to the Tunisians.

The Ghanaian club wanted to rewrite history by qualifying to the next round of the CAF Champions League after a 12-years wait.

The Porcupine Warriors return to the competition after a monotonous feat at the CAF Confederations Cup last year where they reached the Group Stages.

Kotoko failed to go past the Group Stages after placing 3rd in the group under former coach CK AKonnor.

Kotoko's regional rivals, Ashantigold were knocked out of the CAF Confederations Cup on Saturday by RS Berkane.
