Former Asante Kotoko captain, Amos Frimpong has backed the club’s decision to participate in CAF inter-club competitions next season.
The Ghana Football Association picked the Porcupine Warriors to represent Ghana in the CAF Champions League next season after the 2019/20 season was truncated due to the Coronavirus.
Several football personalities including coaches and ex-players have advised the hierarchy of the club to reject the opportunity to play in Africa citing lack of adequate time for preparations.
However, Frimpong who captained the club in the 2018/19 Africa campaign insists it would be a good decision for the club to play in Africa.
According to him, it could help players to get offers from foreign policy clubs which Kotoko can get a huge sum of money from it.
“Such decisions are normally taken by the board of directors, management and technical term. Using coach CK Akonnor’s era where we were not active, the management took a bold decision for us to represent Ghana. We even exceeded our target by qualifying for the group stage, ” he told Hello FM.
“We seem to have the same situation at the moment so if the leadership assesses the strength of the team and decide to play in Africa, I think it is in the right direction.
“When we play in Africa, it raises the value of the players where some even get better offers for the club to earn something.
“So if the board decides to allow the team to take the opportunity, it is good.”
Amos Frimpong is currently in Ghana after completing his contract with AS Kaloum of Guinea.
