Asante Kotoko legend Abdul Razak believes the side can go on to finish this season with an unprecedented treble by winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

The Ghanaian giants are in pole position to successfully defend their Premier League title for the third consecutive time.

The Porcupine Warriors have also progressed to the next round of the FA Cup competition while they prepare themselves for their return to the CAF Champions League.

Many however believe though the side look good enough to retain their domestic title, is not that strong to make the needed impact in the Champions League.

Not even the signing of Rahim Ayew, Isaac Boakye, Larbi Koomson and Isaac Boakye has been convincing enough of their African Cup credentials.

But ex player and coach Abdul Razak believes the current crop can defy the odds to finish the season with the three titles provided they prepare well.

“I believe Kotoko can win the treble,” he told Metro FM.

“We only have to learn from our mistakes and prepare the side well.

“Kotoko is currently on top of the league which is good, we are going further in the FA Cup and the Champions League is about to start.

“So with good preparations, I don’t see how we cannot make this dream of winning a treble a reality.”

Kotoko began last season with similar hopes but ended up winning only the Premier League.

The champions crashed out of the Champions League at the penultimate qualification stage to JSM Bejaia before suffering losing the FA Cup final to Medeama.

The team currently lead the Ghanaian top flight by seven points at the end of the first half of the season.
