Head coach of Kano Pillars, Ibrahim Musa, has promised Asante Kotoko a stiffer challenge in their CAF Champions League return leg fixture, regardless of the venue.
Last Saturday, Pillars succeeded in defeating Kotoko 3-2 in Kano, Nigeria, and despite conceding two goals at their backyard, the coach believes his team has what it takes to force a second streak win.
The Porcupine Warriors will host Pillars next Sunday, August 25 in the second leg, and according to coach Musa, the venue will have no telling effect on their game plan. And speaking on Nhyira FM, he said, “We allowed Asante Kotoko SC to score us two goals after taking the lead but we fought hard to beat them 3-2.”
He added, “We are coming to Ghana to beat Asante Kotoko as we did to Al Ahly SC in Egypt after a one-all draw in a 1st Leg at Sani Abacha Stadium.”
If Kotoko win in the Kumasi tie, they will face the winner of the Haifa FC versus Etoile Sportive du Sahel.
