Former Asante Kotoko coach, Michael Osei, says Kotoko players must exhibit strong character against Etoile Sportive du Sahel to be able to win on Sunday.
The Porcupine Warriors are due to face their Tunisian counterparts for the first leg of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League second round of matches at the Baba Yara Stadium in three days time.
Coach Osei told the GraphicSports online in an interview that the Kotoko players must be resilient and discipline to defeat their opponent.
” In football, everything is possible so Kotoko can win, though the Tunisian team is stronger. The Kotoko players must be strong in terms of character, must be tactically disciplined,and work extra hard in the game, if they exhibit these attitudes they will succeed,” he noted.
The deputy coach of the Black Meteors further called on Kotoko fans to support the playing body and the technical team when the going gets tough on Sunday.
” kotoko have a new coach and have brought in some new players, so they are still working on tactical plans, and this will take time, so if the game becomes tough, the fans should still support them,” he remarked.
Meanwhile, Etoile du Sahel are scheduled to arrive in Ghana on Friday ahead of the clash against Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium.
