Kotoko team manager Shilla Alhassan says Club is bent on conquering Africa Featured

Published in Local Football News

By Captain Andy Smith

Team manager of Kotoko, Shilla Alhassan has stated categorically that the team’s prime objective for this year is to represent Ghana in the continental front and make an indelible mark in either the CAF Champions League or the Confederations Cup.

 

The Porcupine Warriors took the football sword in the early 1970 and 1980s to conquer Africa when they won the CAF Champions League twice.

The Club have since failed to get their hands on an African title denting their image in Africa.

This albatross is still dangling on the necks of the team’s irrepressible supporters without any attempt to drop it down.

The last time the Porcupine Warriors neared the capture of continental trophy was 2004 when they played in the finals of the CAF Confederations Cup with local rivals Hearts of Oak and eventually lost on penalties.

Speaking to the media, the new team manager and former player of the side,  Shilla Alhassan revealed that the current administration is highly motivated to revamp the team’s lost glory in the continental front.

“Our main focus for this season is to win the ongoing Ghana Premier League as well as the FA Cup to enable us qualify for Africa to re-write our name in the African history book which I believe is the ultimate desire of every kotoko fan’’. He told the media in an interview.

Kotoko will play hearts on Sunday at the Accra Sports stadium in the week 8 of the Ghana Premier league.
