Published on: 11 February 2019

Lawyer Sarfo Duku, the Communications Director of Asante Kotoko says his outfit will conciliate the Black Satellites disappointing U-20 African Youth Championship display with a victory over ZESCO United in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Jimmy Cobblah and his boys failed to qualify for the semifinal stage of the ongoing Africa Youth Championship in Niger after losing 1-0 to Mali in the final group game on Saturday.

The team's elimination from the Mundial means they have missed out on a place to the 2019 U-20 FIFA World Cup which will be held in Poland.

With Asante Kotoko gearing up to play Zambian giants ZESCO United in their second group on Wednesday, the club's spokesperson, indicated that though the nation is wailing over the Black Satellites' exit from the AFCON, his outfit will do their utmost best to bring joy to every football fan in the country when they come up against ZESCO United on Wednesday.

"Preparation for the match is going well. All the registered players are gearing up for the game expect goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad who is away with the Black Satellites," Lawyer Duku stated on Happy FM.

"Management have done their bit to motivate the players to win the match and we hope every effort that we have put in this ahead of the match will bring us to win on Wednesday."

"With the Black Satellites exiting the tournament, all the attention have descended on Kotoko to do well and I can assure every football fan that we'll not disappoint. The nation should get behind us in our bid to bring joy on their faces again."

The highly-anticipated clash is scheduled to come off on Wednesday, February 13, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Kotoko are sitting 3rd on the Group C table with zero point after one round of games.
