Former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah faces a stiff battle to keep his side Al-Khartoum of Sudan in the CAF Confederations Cup when they take on experienced campaigners Power Dynamos of Zambia away on Sunday.
Al-Khartoum won the first leg 1-0 at home two weeks ago and are under pressure not to get knocked out in the preliminary round, but Appiah says he has learned to deal with situations like this.
“There is one thing about me; personally I don’t believe in pressure. Most of the time I try to psych my player’s to enjoy the game and give it their best shot,” Appiah said.
The last time Appiah was in Zambia, it was with the Black Stars who lost 1-0 to the Chipolopolo, but Appiah says this is a different ball game, especially as he has only just started building Al-Khartoum.
“Talking of the Black Stars that was a different team. This is actually a new team that I am trying to build and they are so many lapses but I believe they will give Power Dynamos a very good game,” Appiah said in an interview with Africanfootball.com.
The winner of this tie on aggregate is likely to face Gabon’s CS Mounana who lead Zanzibar’s Polisi 5-0 from the first leg in Libreville. Story by Ghana/Joy Sports/Gary Al-Smith
