Asante Kotoko is always tipped as favourites in domestic competitions but their FA Cup hoodoo in recent season’s presents any side that they meet in the final a glimmer of hope.
The Porcupine Warriors, two-time losing finalist in the competition in the last three seasons come up against Inter Allies in the final on Sunday at the Accra Stadium.
Reaching the final appears an over-achievement for Inter Allies but for the man, who has turned around their season, Herbert Addo, it’s reward for hardwork and understanding of his methods.
Picking the reins midway through the Premier League season, Addo has superintended over Inter Allies’ revival, lifting them from relegation contenders to a 6th place finish in their premiership debut and a first major Cup final yet to come.
Addo, who led Aduana Stars to the title in their Premier League debut four season’s ago is on the brink of another success when his team come up against a Kotoko side, they did beat over both legs in the League.
“I don’t think about the opposing team, they should rather think about me,” Herbert Addo said at Friday’s pre-match media conference.
“There are no big sides in the Cup games and our team have what it takes to beat Kotoko.”
To crown the season with a Cup success might just the perfect parting gift Addo, who is out of contract at Inter Allies will like to hand his employers.
“Sunday’s match will be exciting and I will teach them new tricks,” a confident Addo said in his closing remarks.
Aside lifting the title, the winner of the Cup finals will be handed cheque for GH¢30,000 plus 25% of the net of the gate proceeds.
