The Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalization Committee (NC) have sent goodwill messages to Obuasi Ashanti Gold and Kumasi Asante Kotoko as they gear up for their respective assignments in CAF’s inter-club competitions.
The Miners are billed to host Equatorial Guinea side Akonangui FC at the Len Clay Sports Stadium later today whiles the Porcupine Warriors are expected to welcome Nigeria side Kano Pillars on Sunday afternoon.
In a statement from the NC, they have sent their best regards to the two Ghanaian clubs in hopes that they win handsomely in order to propel them to the next round of their competitions.
The statement from the NC reads:
The Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association, on behalf of the football fraternity, wishes Asante Kotoko and Ashantigold the best of luck in their respective CAF inter-club competitions this weekend.
While Ashantigold face Equatorial Guinean side Akonangui at the Len Clay Stadium on Saturday in the CAF Confederations Cup, Asante Kotoko will host Nigeria's Kano Pillars in Kumasi on Sunday in the CAF Champions League.
Our two representatives in Africa registered impressive results in the first-leg of their respective competitions away. Ashantigold's 1:1 draw in Equatorial Guinea and Kotoko's narrow 3:2 defeat in Nigeria are results we are confident both the Miners and the Porcupine Warriors are capable of overturning.
As they play the 2nd leg at home before their ever-loyal fans, we are confident Ashantigold and Kotoko will tilt the scale in their favour to advance to the next round of their respective competitions.
Both clubs have demonstrated serious commitments to their African Cup campaign so far, and as ambassadors of Ghanaian football in this year's CAF-inter club competitions, we urge Ghanaian football fans to troop to the stadia in their numbers and offer our representatives the needed support in Obuasi and Kumasi respectively.
Up, Asante Kotoko and Ashantigold.
