Former Kotoko coach, Ibrahim Sunday has reiterated that the team is under pressure to perform in the ongoing CAF Confederations Cup.
The reigning MTN FA Cup champions lost their first game in the competition last Sunday when they traveled to Sudan to open their group stage campaign against Al Hilal. The Porcupine Warriors were defeated 1-0.
Ibrahim Sunday, the former Ghanaian international believes some of the players are under pressure and need to be motivated in such big games.
â€œSome of the players are inexperienced in such a competition, therefore, the pressure is bound to set in,” he told Mercury FM.
â€œPressure is inevitable but it is our duty to always encourage them and try letting them understand that both home and away games are equal,â€ he added.
â€œNow that they have lost their first game of the group stages, itâ€™s most likely the fans will be expectant of them to deliver especially playing at home.
Asante Kotoko will host Zambian side Zesco United on February 13th in Kumasi.
