Management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko is calling for support for the team ahead of their Confederation Cup game against Zesco United on Wednesday.
The Porcupine Warriors continue the tournament with their first home game following their defeat to Al Hillal last Sunday.
In a statement released by the Reds, the management called for calm and support for the players as they seek to bounce back from defeat on Wednesday.
“Management will like to call on our supporters to remain calm and in support of the club despite our loss to Al Hilal in the opening fixture of the CAF Confederation Cup Group C,” says the statement.
“As Management of the club, we do acknowledge the disappointment that the result brought to our rank and file, and the fact that some have been left disillusioned in our chances of making it out of the group.”
“We, however, will want to state that our aim of qualifying out of the group and the chances to that regard are still intact despite the result we had at the Al Hilal Stadium in Sudan last Sunday.”
“We play our first home game of the group stage against Zambian side Zesco United on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, and will urge our supporters show up in their numbers to support the team to victory.”
“We still have a good chance to make amends in the competition after the poor result last week, and that opportunity starts on Wednesday with our first home game of the competition at the Baba Yara Stadium.”
“It is our wish that we all see it as our responsibility and throng the stadium to do our part of the bargain by supporting the players and the technical team to win the game,” concludes the statement.
