2017/18 Premier League: Players must use CAFCC defeat as motivation - Annan

Posted on: Fri Mar 02, 2018 - Report by Gideon Boakye Botwe

Felix Annan insists that Kotoko must use the pain of their Confederation Cup exit as motivation to beat WAFA and to also urge them on to success in the upcoming season.

The Porcupines were crashed out of the CAF competition in the first preliminary round by CARA Brazzaville by 6-7 on penalties after both clubs had won their respective home games by 1-0.
The 2017/18 Premier League soon kicks off but many Kotoko fans are yet to overcome the pain brought by the defeat, and the Kotoko goalkeeper has told his colleagues to fight for a good start in the league to attract the support of the fans.
"Each player in the team must take his motivation from the disappointment we had in Congo", Annan told Kotoko Express on Wednesday. "That should be enough to motivate everyone to work extra hard to get a good start this season. That is the only way we can lift ourselves up, attract the attention and positive affection of the fans again and sustain them throughout the season".
Kotoko's first game of the season is away to WAFA, a club they are yet to beat away and to whom they lost by 2-0 last season.
Felix Annan was scouted and groomed by the academy then called Gomoa Fetteh Feyenord. He was recruited by Kotoko and went back again on a season loan in the 2014/16 campaign.
"We know they are a very good side", Annan said about the chances of Kotoko in the coming game. "However, it is a side that has also lost a lot of its experienced and regular players and I think we can capitalise on that to beat them. That we know would still not come easy but we must be fully prepared to fight for a win".
