CAF CL: Kotoko chief expects ‘intimidating’ Kumasi crowd to propel them to victory in return leg

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Asante Kotoko, George Amoako is counting on the massive support of the club’s fan base ahead of the return leg of the CAF Champions League preliminary round tie against Kano Pillars.

The Porcupine Warriors fell to a narrow 3-2 defeat in Nigeria last Saturday.

The 16, 000 capacity Sani Abacha Stadium was filled to the rafters. The venue was electrified by the loud cheers and jeers from the stands, a scene that George Amoako believes Kotoko supporters must replicate in the return encounter.

The Ghana Premier League giants will host Kano Pillars in Kumasi for the second leg game on August 23.

“They cheered their team to get those two quick goals,” he said. “We would have to get the same kind of atmosphere. We are even expecting a more charged atmosphere because we have more supporters. This is just a 16, 000 capacity stadium, Kumasi is 40,000 plus and we expect that the supporters would be there to ensure our victory and qualification.”
