Charles Kwablan Akonnor says he is impressed with his achievements with Asante Kotoko.
The former Dreams FC gaffer who was appointed in October 2018, has led the club to participate in the CAF Confederations cup group phase for the first time in eleven years.
However, the Porcupine Warriors are seeking to secure a quarter-final berth in their final Group C game against Zambian side Zesco United in Ndola.
But speaking exclusively to Starr FM Sports, the former Black Stars skipper insists he will not be disappointed if the Porcupine Warriors fail to progress to the quarterfinals of the competition.
“I think over this short period, the payers, management and everybody have done well for us to reach this stage and of course we would love to achieve more but honestly I must say I am very proud of my achievements so far at the club.
“Most of the boys have now gained enough exposure and with am due respect some had not even travelled before, but their performance is there for all to see with even four of my players getting national team call ups so I feel very proud of my achievements at Kotoko,” Akonnor added.
Kotoko on Wednesday left for Zambia with 18 players for the crucial game without key striker Sogne Yacouba who is serving a suspension.
