Asante Kotoko board member, Alhaji Abu Lamin has said the newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah will decide the Porcupine’s participation in the 2020-2021 CAF Champions League.
The two-time conquerors of Africa are set to represent Ghana in next season’s CAF Champions League with an aim of improving upon their first-round elimination in 2019-20.
The Reds received the nod for the championship on the decision of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following the premature termination of the 2019-20 domestic football season.
“Nana Yaw will start work on Monday at the club secretariat to assess things and advice the board on Africa” – Alhaji Lamin told Atinka FM.
“He has not met with the technical team yet and he needs to know the kind of players we have if they are quality enough and the club’s financial status before any decision,” He added.
Kotoko’s best performance in a continental championship in recent times remains a runners-up finish in the 2004 Confederation Cup following a defeat to country rivals Hearts of Oak.
The club’s new 12-member board, set up in June and has been tasked to restore the glory of the old days.
