Asante Kotoko captain, Amos Frimpong has stated that the huge promises by club Chairman, Dr. Kwame Kyei as they prepare for Sunday’s CAF Confederations Cup match against Congolese side, Club Athlétique Renaissance Aiglon (CARA) wouldn’t be a distraction.
The players will be given GH?20,000 each if they reach the group stage of the competition. They will as well have a two-bed room house each if the win the Confederation Cup.
Kotoko have however not been at the league stage of any CAF-organised competition since 2008. They have indeed exited at the first and second preliminary rounds in their last three attempts in Africa.
Amos Frimpong told Kumasi based Angel FM that, the promises they’ve had are tempting adding that, they would work to eliminate undue pressure and secure desired result.
“We know what goes on in the club. For instance, those of us who have been [around] for some years now; we know how the supporters react when things are going well. What Dr. [Kyei] said was pleasing to the ears but when you [get to the] platform to perform, what comes after it when you give your best, is better than what he promised” said Amos.
Amos Frimpong reiterated that, the promises wouldn’t put pressure on them. “What doctor promised is good but it’s not putting pressure on us. We are fully focused” he added.
