Kotoko striker Aziz warns against complacency ahead of CAF Champions League tie

Posted On Tuesday, 4th February 2014

Kotoko striker Abdul Yusif Aziz is preaching against complacency ahead of Sunday’s CAF Champions League tie against Barrack Young Controllers.

The Ghanaian champions will host the Liberian side in the first leg of the preliminary qualifier at the Baba Yara stadium on Sunday.

Coach Mas-Ud Dramani will welcome eight of his experienced players from the CHAN tournament – which will make them favourite against their opponent in front of their home fans.

However the ex-Real Tamale United attacker has warned his colleagues to be guarded by the past mistakes.

“We drew goalless away in the first leg of that last game (against JSM Bajaia of Algeria) and thought that the return leg (in Kumasi) was a done deal but we ended up drawing 1-1 and so went out on the away goal rule”, he told the club’s official website.

“We went out because of complacency and we shouldn’t repeat that mistake again. What happened the last time should teach us that everything is possible in football and that it is never over until everything is over.

“The good thing is that all of us are aware of that mistake. Another also is that although we made a mistake in thinking that we were already through, our inability to do so should remind us that we have to always try to get an away goal and try not to concede here (in Kumasi).”
