Remember Bejaia: Michael Akuffo cautions Kotoko against complacency over Eulma draw

Michael Akuffo has indicated that the scoreless draw by Kumasi Asante Kotoko in Algeria on Saturday against MC El Eulma was a good result, but they should guard against complacency ahead of the 2 leg in Kumasi.

The 29-year-old was one of the players who made the Kotoko fraternity proud in Algeria yesterday, but reminded his team mates of what happened to them 2 years ago, against Bejaia, after they became the first Ghanaian team to earn a point on Algerian soil, however Bejaia in the 2 leg held the Ghana champions to a one all draw to kick them out of the competition through the away goal rule.

‘We have done well by holding El Eulma to a goalless draw, but we shouldn’t over rejoice on this, because the second leg is awaiting us.

‘We should be mindful of what happened to us 2 years ago against Bejaia in Algeria. Although we drew goalless there, they succeeded holding us to a 1-1 draw in the second leg in Kumasi, ‘Michael Akuffo said.

Amos Frimpong and Michael Akuffo are the only players who started in yesterday’s game that experienced the Bejaia shock.

The Porcupine Warriors will face MC El Eulma in the second leg at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi a fortnight.
