Asante Kotoko’s early exit from CAF Confederation Cup doesn’t surprise former Hearts of Oak defender Dan Quaye.
According to Quaye, who starred in the Phobians team that won the competition in 2004, he predicted Kotoko’s downfall after they failed to make the most of home court as they claimed a slender 1-0 win in the first leg against CARA Brazzaville.
Kotoko were eliminated 7-6 on penalties after a 1-1 aggregate over two legs and that has led to the immediate sacking of head coach Steven Polack.
“I have been vindicated, I said that Kotoko should forget about the Confederations Cup after they squandered 3 penalties and scored just one,” Quaye said.
However, he blamed the delayed start of the Ghana Premier League as the chief reason for Kotoko’s shocking exit at the hands of the Congolese side.
The lack of league matches is the reason why Kotoko could not advance to the next stage of the competition but with Aduana Stars because most of the players have played together for about 4 to 5 years that is why they were able to go through”.
