The meeting to be held on Saturday is to inspire the players to deliver victory in their first leg preliminary tie on Sunday.

“It’s the first time in four years Kotoko are returning to Africa and over thirty tears since we won the trophy,” the club’s Public and Supporters Relations Manager, Listowell Bukarson told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“All faithful of our great club have expressed their respective profound desire that we make an appreciable impact this time.

“To the extent that the 83 (African Cup) winning squad have offered to storm the teams’ camp to motivate the boys ahead of the must-win tie.”
