George Amoako, Asante Kotoko CEO
Asante Kotoko CEO, George Amoako says his side will “finish” Kenyan side Kariobangyi Sharks this Saturday in Kumasi in the second leg of their CAF Confederations Cup tie.
The Porcupine Warriors held Sharks to a goalless draw in Nairobi, and return to Ghana with the advantage at home on Saturday.
Despite the Reds being criticized for their defensive approach to the game in Kenya, the affable football administrator indicated they had a plan which worked.
He is, however, confident ahead of the return leg in Kumasi on December 22 at the Baba Yara Stadium.
“We knew what we wanted going into the game and we have done that perfectly right,” George Amoako said after the game.
“We told ourselves we shouldn’t lose but if there is any chance for us to win it, we take it. But we went into it not to take any goals.”
“We needed to conserve energy to maintain a respectable scoreline and that is exactly what we did. If we had opened up we could have scored many goals. Look, how many times did they even threaten our goalkeeper?”
“Kumasi people should expect us. We are coming to finish them at home,” he concluded.
