The president said;

“It is difficult for Ghana football to succeed unless Kotoko succeeds. That’s how it has been in the past and that’s how it should be in the future,” said the President.

“Kotoko have a very special, cherished and enviable role in Ghanaian Sports development.

“Clearly it’s possible the government should be able to assist the club, these would be temporary measures over a period of time, a year or two. Ultimately the club should be self-sufficient, generating money for keeping the club going.

“We will put our heads together to see what can be done to assist through the Minister of Sports.

 

“I think it’s in the interest of Ghana to have a strong participation to fly the flag of Ghana,” he concluded.

 

Asante Kotoko has been paired against the Mauritanian club, FC Nouadhibou in the preliminary stages of the 2020/21 CAF Champions League.

The team will travel to Mauritania for the first leg against FC Nouadhibou at the Stade Cheikha Ould Boïdiya
