Kotoko and AshGold should not play in CAF inter-club competitions- Bright Adjei

Published on: 01 July 2020

Aduana Stars striker Bright Adjei believes that Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold are not ready to play in the continental competitions and thinks they should rather focus on the local league.

On Tuesday, the Ghana Football Association announced that the 2019/20 football season has been cancelled following the impact of the coronavirus and the huge costs involved in resuming the competitions.

In the case of the Ghana Premier League, no teams were relegated. However, the GFA decided to select Asante Kotoko and AshantiGold for the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation cup respectively. The two clubs participated in the competitions last season.

Adjei has noted that their extended period away from football will be detrimental to them and added that they should not play because of that.

"Going almost four(4)months without football is bad to any player and the team as a whole . Individual training is different from team training," he stated on Alpha radio.

"I will advice Asante Kotoko and Ashantigold sc not to partake in the African Inter Club competition.It will be prudent for both clubs to prepare for the local league instead of playing in Africa."
