Former Black Queens head coach and CAF Instructor Anthony K. Edusei has implored the country’s two most glamorous clubs to put their house in order to rub shoulders with the continent’s big wigs.
The two heavyweights – Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko – have fallen from the pecking order in relation to interclub competitions on the continent.
Asante Kotoko, two-time winners of the CAF Champions League last featured in the elite stage of club competition was 14 years ago – 2006 – whiles one-time winners of the Champions League and Confederations Cup last won a continental trophy in 2005.
Both sides have struggled to breakthrough to the group stages of the interclub competitions whiles their equals in the mould of TP Mazembe, Esperance, Etoile du Sahel and Mamelodi Sundowns have moved light years ahead of the duo.
Speaking to Kumasi-based Ashh FM the former Asante Kotoko Gaffer expressed his shock both sides don’t have training facilities on their own and if they put their house in order they will take their rightful positions on the continent.
“It’s a shame that clubs like Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak don’t have training facilities but I believe if they will do their things well in our country our clubs will perform well even win the CAF competition” he concluded.
