National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, Sammi Awuku has stressed that Asante Kotoko will receive support from the government for the team’s campaign in Africa.

Having finished the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season as champions, the reds will have the chance to represent the country in the CAF Champions League next season.

Speaking to Akoma FM, Sammi Awuku has heaped praise on Asante Kotoko for their success this season.

While urging the team to improve on its attack, the NLA Director-General further assured that the team will receive support for the Africa campaign.

“I believe that in terms of tactical discipline, it's been good, their scoring ability is what they (Kotoko) should work on.

“You cannot waste such opportunities in Africa. But their overall game plan looks very fantastic.

“Government will do its part, same as the NLA and also the Ministry of Youth and Sports to raise funds for Kotoko to do well in Africa,” Sammi Awuku said.

Asante Kotoko on Sunday, June 12, were officially crowned the champions of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season.

The coronation ceremony was held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium after the 3-0 win against Elmina Sharks.
