Former Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe has advised his former club to refuse the lure in playing in Africa's biggest club continental showpiece CAF Champions League when it returns next season. 

According to the former goal poacher who made headlines during his playing stinct in the Ghana Premier League terrorizing defenders, believes the Porcupine Warriors are not in the right condition (financially, player quality, preparations) amongst other factors, hence should decline the lure of playing in Africa. 

Following the annulment of the league, the GFA’s ExCo reached an agreement to select Asante Kotoko and their regional rivals, Ashanti Gold as Ghana's representatives for next season's CAF inter-club competitions.

In an interview with Kumasi based Opemsuo FM, Bekoe, who made the most whiles playing for the Porcupine Warriors insists that comparatively his former side can't rival other top sides on the African terrain in terms of player quality, finances, structures, technical brains and others. 

“Kotoko should not accept the opportunity to compete in Africa next season to waste money, The club is not well-prepared to get a group stage birth which of course will be a waste of resources.
The Board and the technical team should work fervently to shape the club before they will resolve to compete in Africa."

"For a team to perform majestically in Africa, it comes with a quality crop of players. This Kotoko team is of low quality." he ended

The Ghana Premier League was recently cancelled following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in the country, Ghana, which reached exponential level.
