Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan rates highly their performance in the ongoing Caf Confederation Cup despite the club being on the brink of elimination from the continental inter-club championship.
With one more match to end the group stage campaign, the Porcupine Warriors current third position in Group C leaves them at a non-qualification spot.
For Annan, the club deserves a pat on the back for how far they have come considering all circumstances.
“I would give our performance so far 8/10,” the shot-stopper told Cafonline.
“The playing body has done a great job so far because prior to this campaign, many did not believe in our abilities, largely due to lack of competitive football on the Ghanaian domestic front.
“It’s been a great journey and we are looking beyond Zesco to extend our continued stay in the competition.
“Teamwork, unity, determination and self-belief is our secret weapon.
“We have enough qualities in all departments of the team.
“I’m optimistic that the best is yet to come from Asante Kotoko this season.”
By the current standings, Kotoko must beat Zambia’s Zesco United in their last group game on Sunday to make the last eight.
Meanwhile, Zesco United coach George Lwandamina says the club have the image of Zambia to defend when they host Asante Kotoko in the Caf Confederation Cup.
Currently bottom of Group C, Zega Mambo’s hopes of making the quarter-finals have already been dashed ahead of the final matchday of the group stage.
But Sunday’s game will not be taken lightly all the same, according to the gaffer. “Even the last game is also important; We have to protect the image of the country,” Lwandamina told Cafonline.
