FELIX ANNAN: We have a duty at Asante Kotoko

One thing fans of Asante Kotoko would pray and wish for is to see their beloved club conquering Africa as was done in 1970 and 1983. The Kotoko family have since been unable to chalk any continental glory after those triumphs. Asante Kotoko came close to winning a continental trophy twice but unfortunately lost to Wydad AC Casablanca (2002) and their sworn rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak (2004-2005). Successive era of players have tried but get eliminated at the preliminary stage.
Netminder, Felix Annan and his teammates are desperate to put the troubled times that befell the club during the off-season behind them and finally give their fans something to cheer about by returning to winning ways. To have that dream, they need to play with verve and be ready to play for each other.
“We have a duty to our club and to ourselves. The fans know we want to win just as they want to but that is football. It is full of uncertainties. You don’t always get what you wish for. There’s a good feeling in camp right now, and we must do everything we can to bring this run of bad luck to an end. The greatest gift we could give to our supporters is to start winning convincingly.” He told kickgh.com
“Asante Kotoko is a great club and the current situation we find ourselves in does not befit the status of the club. Growing up, I read a lot about Kotoko being a giant not only in Ghana but Africa at large so it was not surprising to me when the club was named of Africa’s club of the century.” He added
“What I read and learnt about the club informed my decision to join this great club at a tender age. I was told of the dynamic style and love the players had for the famous red jersey.” He quipped.
The revival for Annan and his colleagues start on Sunday and against an impressive CARA Brazzaville side in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup in Kumasi.” CARA Brazzaville are a good side and have been excellent since the start of their league. Their presence in this competition is no fluke. We need to take them seriously and not underestimate or overestimate them. They have talented players in their fold but I believe in our ability to beat them and beat them convincingly to make the return encounter a mere formality.”
“My colleagues and I very much hope to be present and correct at the end of the road, to finally regain trust of our loyal supporters and bring a long run of frustration and failure in Africa to an end.” He ended.
