Ibrahim Sunday believes Asante Kotoko is under pressure to perform in Confed Cup

Asante Kotoko will be under pressure to perform in the CAF Confederations Cup game against Zesco United on Wednesday at the Baba Yara Stadium, reveals Ibrahim Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors lost their first game in the competition last Sunday against Al-Hilal in Sudan and will look to bounce back to winning ways to enhance their chances of advancing from the group.

Ibrahim Sunday, a former African Footballer of the year and former coach of the club says some of the players are under pressure and need to be motivated in such big games.

“Some of the players are inexperienced in such a competition, therefore, pressure is bound to set in," he told Mercury FM.

“Pressure is inevitable but it is our duty to always encourage them and try letting them understand that both home and away games are equal,” he added.

“Now that they have lost their first game of the group stages, it’s most likely the fans will be expectant of them to deliver especially playing at home."

Asante Kotoko will host Zambian giants Zesco United next week Wednesday in Kumasi.
