Asante Kotoko captain Amos Frimpong says he wants to help the Porcupine Warriors redeem their image on the continent.
The defender is eager to help his Club bring back the lost glory in Africa.
Kotoko have failed to make an impact in Africa in almost a decade, having failed to go past the second round in their last three appearances in the CAF Champions League.
The former Ghana Champions were eliminated by Algerian Club JSM Bejai in the second round in the 2012 edition of the competition, going on to lose to Liberian Club BYC the following year.
The team, however, failed to reach the group stages in their last edition after losing to Algerian Club MC Eulma in the penultimate match to the money zone.
Amos Frimpong, who has been an inspiring leader for the Ghanaian giants, says he wants to help restore the Club’s pride in Africa.
“We are here to help Kotoko restore their pride in African football. I think our mission is on course. We will keep pressing hard for the best,” he told Asantekotokosc.com
Kotoko last made an appearance at the Group stages of the CAF Champions League in 2007.
The team will not be participating in Africa this term after losing on both the League title and FA Cup trophy to Ashanti Gold and Medeama SC respectively.
