Kotoko v Wise: Dedon aims for FA Cup upset





Angelo Arkhurst Dedon will make a return trip to his beloved Asante Kotoko as he leads Eleven Wise against his former side in the quarter-final match of the MTN FA Cup on Sunday.

The midfielder knows the reception that awaits him after leaving the Porcupine Warriors over a decade ago.

Sunday’s match will be his first against his former side since taking up coaching and Dedon will eager to show his ex-employers how good he has become in a different capacity.

“I expect a cordial reception. It will be a good one,” Dedon said on Thursday.

“It’s been a long time that I visited them and I am happy to be going back there.”

Eleven Wise, who used to compete with Kotoko on a weekly basis have since swapped the Premiership for Division One but they are attempting to rejoin the elite ranks once again.

A meeting with Kotoko in the FA Cup, according to Dedon will bring the best out of his team.

“An upset is possible and we are going to play football. They are a good side but we are preparing very well.

“We are playing them in Kumasi is different, playing Kotoko will bring the best out of my boys and that will motivate them.

“If Kotoko wins it’s no news but if we win, that will be big news.”
