Published on: 08 August 2019

Veteran Kumasi Asante Kotoko midfielder, Jordan Opoku has revealed that every player at the club must play their part to ensure goalkeeper Felix Annan succeeds as captain for the team.

Felix Annan was confirmed the captain of the Reds over the weekend and is set to begin his reign with a challenging CAF Champions League game against Nigerian club Kano Pillars on Sunday.

Ahead of the first leg of the tie game in Nigeria, Jordan Opoku has indicated how important it is for the team to support the new captain and adds every player in the team has a vital role to play in the club's success.

“Felix has been named as the captain of the team but the task ahead of us is beyond one individual. It is not for a number of players or the captain alone. It is for all of us. We all have duties to perform. We must stay as a group to support him for his reign to be successful,” the midfielder said in an interview with Asantekotokosc.com.

Jordan Opoku will miss the trip to Nigeria after he was dropped from the final 18-man squad announced by head coach Kjetil Zachariassen.
