🇬🇭🔴⚫️ Zachariassen says the CAF Confederation Cup suits Kotoko

Kjetil Zachariassen has said Kotoko’s level was not fitting for the CAF Champions League.

The Norwegian coach’s statement comes straight after Sunday’s CAF Champions League exit. The Porcupine Warriors squandered a 2-0 first-leg win over Etoile du Sahel to lose 3-2 in Tunisia.

Kotoko’s lost meant relegation into the CAF Confederation Cup tournament. “The CAF Confederation Cup is our level at the moment, we are in the Confederation Cup, I think that's the right level for us," Zachariassen said via GhanaSoccerNet.

The former Ashanti Gold coach further called for the need to take a sensible and practical view. Zachariassen underlined his three months with the team as a limited period to be a high level for competing in the CAF Champions League.

"We’ve got to be realistic, we’ve got to be realistic because we have only worked together for 3 months,” he added.

Kotoko’s last CAF Champions League group stage appearance was in 2015. Last season’s Confederation run saw the Ghanaians finish third in Group C behind Nkana FC and Al-Hilal.

Kotoko's unsuccessful Group C run in 2019:

  • Al-Hilal 1-0 Kotoko
  • Kotoko 2-1 Zesco
  • Nkana 3-1 Kotoko
  • Kotoko 3-0 Nkana
  • Kotoko 1-1 Al-Hilal
  • Zesco 2-1 Kotoko.

Meanwhile, Kotoko will only find out their CAF Confederation Cup opponents later this week.
