It’s a big game and the difference will be the supporters - Kotoko coach Zerbo rallies for support

Published on: 16 September 2022

Asante Kotoko head coach Seydou Zerbo has urged backed fans to troop into the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday, September 18, 2022 for their return leg encounter against RC Kadiogo in the CAF Champions League.

The Porcupine Warriors head into the game with a 1-0 advantage courtesy of Isaac Oppong’s late strike in the first leg of the preliminary round of the competition.

Kotoko will be looking to secure a favourable score line to advance to the next stage of the competition.

"It’s a big game and the difference will be the supporters," Seydou Zerbo said at Friday’s presser.

"Everywhere you go in Europe you will see the supporters being the number twelve man so if they really have the team at heart, then they should be here on Sunday."

Kotoko last won the CAF Champions League in 1983 by beating Egyptians giants Al Ahly.

The winner of the two-legged tie will face the winner of the game between Gaborone United Sporting Club and AS Vita Club of DR Congo in the next round of the competition.
