Ghanaian clubs lack requisite qualities to dominate Africa – Kojo Addae-Mensah


DataBank CEO, Kojo Addae-Mensah, beleives no Ghanaian club can conquer Africa in the Caf Champions League and the Confederations Cup competition.

His comments come following Asante Kotoko’s 2-1 defeat to ES Setif of Algeria on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Algerian side came from behind to win the game after Kwame Poku had scored the first goal in the second half of the game.

Addae-Mensah, who is a staunch supporter of the Porcupine Warriors following the defeat said, “Though it was disappointing, it is not surprising,” he told Accra based Happy FM.

“Right now there is no club in Ghana now that can conquer Africa at the moment.

“Our standard is not up there yet. So the Kotoko fans should lower their expectations. The team played well though. It was disappointing but not surprising,” he said.

He advised the fans to lower their expectation in Africa campaign since the team is not up there yet.

“We should manage our expectations. We are still not there yet. The management should also manage the expectations of the supporters.

“I disagree with those who blamed the coach for the late substitution. I will rather blame the defensive pair for the equalizer they lost concentration.

“I doubt we would qualify to be frank if we are being honest with us. But I wish them all the best”, he concluded.

Asante Kotoko will travel to play ES Setif in the second leg in a week’s time in the playoffs.
