Why do we put pressure on Kotoko leaving Black Stars-Opinion

The fact that the Balck Stars of Ghana has not won any trophy over 30 years now indicate that Kotoko can also be motivated to do more. Looking at the chunk of money we pay to the players in the National team and they are not delivering, then they need to sit back if we expect Kotoko to pull out. There have been over thousand Ghanaian soccer clubs but there have been only two clubs to have won a major African title – Hearts of Oak and the other being the very subject of this article.

The great Asante Kotoko ensured five editions of the Africa Champions Cup would not pass without a Ghanaian club lifting Africa’s most important club soccer trophy. It was Asante Kotoko in 1970 that rejoiced at the Tata Raphael stadium in Kinsasha snatching the trophy from the hands of Englebert – against whom they contested and lost the “67 finals, in a bizarre circumstance .

Former FIFA Geneneral Secretary Michel Zen Ruffinen, who is the coordinator of 2010 gala, confirmed the award on local radio in Ghana. He also explained that details of the criterion used to select the award winners of the various categories will be published on the website of IFFHS in due course.


Ruffinen commended the club for their e noting that it is a major boost to football in Ghana. Each of the continental clubs of the century will receive a golden trophy and a certificate. But the 64 battalions of Hearts of Oak was unbeatable and deserves all the accolades. According to Bernard Don Bortey, he will end the drought for the Porcupine Warriors club if he is appointed as the head coach for the team. “Kotoko CAF Continental trophy droughts can be solved by me if I become a coach for Kotoko am ever ready to coach Kotoko and I can win Africa for Kotoko”, the ex-Hearts of Oak attacker said in an interview with Hot FM.

On the contrary, Ghana were kicked out in the group phase in 2019 in the last edition hosted in Egypt. Ashimeru believes the current team and coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor can put smiles on the faces of Ghanaians once again. Former Ghana international, Laryea Kingston has entreated the current Black Stars team to put in much effort in order to end the country’s trophy drought. “There should be no favouritism, just let the right players play and we will win trophies,” he disclosed on The Tracker on Citi TV.

Finally, without a doubt, the national team is not showing any sign of the shortcomings which makes the clubs also redundant to put Ghana on the map. But if the authorities can eschew friends and chronics then something positive can happen in the near future. The Black Stars were eliminated at the round of 16 stage in the last Afcon. Ghana have played in the 1992, 2010 and 2015 Afcon finals.
