Big names missing from Kotoko's CAF CL squad

Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have listed their CAF Champions League squad minus Sogne Yacouba and Fatawu Safiu.

Coach Kjetil Zachariassen named his troops of 23 shortly before his side travel to Nigeria to take on Kano Pillars.

Safiu is still linked with an exit despite his trial with Swedish side Helsingborg prematurely ended their assessment. Yacouba also looks to be on his way out after reportedly demanding a contract termination.  As reported on Futaa, the Burkinabe striker targetted by South Africa's Orlando Pirates as well as the two Zambian giants Zesco United and Nkana FC.

Meanwhile, the Swedish coach Zachariassen has his trust three strikers: George Abege, Richard Arthur & Naby Keita.

Full Squad:

  • Goalkeepers: Felix Annan, Kwame Baah, Osei Kwame
  • Defenders: Samuel Frimpong, Empem Dacosta, Augustine Sefah, Evans Owusu, Patrick Yeboah, Stephen Ayiku Tetteh, Habib Mohammed, Wahab Adams, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu
  • Midfielders: Alexis Didi, Justice Blay, Jordan Opoku, Kelvin Andoh, Augustine Okrah, Emmanuel Gyamfi, Godfred Asiamah, Martin Antwi
  • Strikers: George Abege, Richard Arthur & Naby Keita

The Porcupine Warriors face Pillars on Thursday before hosting the CAFCL preliminary round second leg in Kumasi in a fortnight.
