Medeama Chief Executive James Essilfie has rubbished claims they are contemplating pulling out of the CAF Confederation Cup due to the huge cost.

“I must admit that the huge financial burden is a majo source of worry. But we have never contemplated pulling out of the competition.

“We cannot afford to disappoint Ghanaians and our fans. We’ll participate and ensure we progress into the group phase of the competition.”
