‘We are not fully ready for Africa’ – Ashanti Gold CEO

Being candid and honest is one of the desirable traits of a leader – and it is in the same vein that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Obuasi Ashanti Gold, Emmanuel Frimpong, has revealed his team is partially ready to compete in CAF Inter-Club Cup competition come next season.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) officially cancelled the 2019/2020 football season after months of suspension following an Executive Council meeting on Tuesday.

“We are eighty-five percent (85%) ready for Africa,” Frimpong told Kumasi FM.

“When the league was suspended, there were rumours going round Ashanti Gold and Asante Kotoko will be going for Africa hence we started preparing and putting everything in place.

“Our coach has been sending training schedules for the players at home. My players are very ready for anything. Ashanti Gold would have been at the top of the league but for the cancellation of the league,” he added.

The Elephants were eliminated during their second preliminary game in the Confederation Cup match last year against Moroccan RS Berkane after winning the Tier II Competition.
