Kotoko won’t experiment in Africa – Listowell
Posted on: Thu May 10, 2012
Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s participation in next year’s CAF Champions League is not something the club would take for granted, Public and Supporters’ Relations Manager, Listowell Yesu Bukarson has disclosed.
Kotoko are yet to be officially crowned champions of the 2011/2012 Glo Premier League by the Premier League Board having won this season’s competition.
Reacting to criticisms that the team has not been winning matches after their 26th week match at home to Berekum Arsenal, Listowell said it was important for the critics to acknowledge the fact that most of the key performers in the team are exhausted and for that reason it was only prudent for the technical team to field some of the non-regular players whose future with the club could well be ascertained after being given the chance to play in the remaining matches.
He said management and the technical team are focused and would therefore not be distracted by anything. “We have secured the ultimate which is the league title. We have a total of 48 players in both the senior and reserve teams and most of the guys are exhausted” said Listowell.
“Why not give others the chance to see their potential, when we are thinking of transferring or offloading some of them. We are building a team for Africa; we will not experiment in Africa. We will not joke there. It is only properly that we test some of these players as we plan” he said.
