Caf Champions League.: Asante Kotoko midfielders Opoku and Okrah ruled out of Kano Pillars clash

Published on: 09 August 2019

Asante Kotoko duo Jordan Opoku and Augustine Okrah are set to miss the CAF Champions League opener at Nigerian side Kano Pillars due to paper works.

The Porcupine Warriors have explained the 'registration of the duo could not go through in time'.

A statement read: ''Midfielders, Jordan Opoku and @AugustineOkrah1 [Augustine Okrah] are not eligible for Sunday's Champions League opener at Kano Pillars. Their registration did not go through in time, but we are working to get them into the squad.''

Opoku, who is a former skipper of the club has a wealth of experience which would have helped the Ghanaian champions.

On the other hand, Okrah was one of many new players signed by the Reds to help them reach the Group stage of the CAF Champions League.

The former Ghana Premier League Most Valuable Player (MVP) and top scorer previously played for Sudanese giants Al Merreikh and Al Hilal in CAF's inter-clubs competitions.

Asante Kotoko will lock horns with Kano Pillars this weekend in the first qualifying round first leg tie of the Caf Champions League.
