Medeama coach Carlos Alberto Paulette is delighted to have led the side towards a historic progression in the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Yellow and Mauves beat Panthers FC of Equatorial Guinea over two legs in an impressive 4-1 aggregate scoreline to advance.

The Ghanaian side are only making their debut in an African club competition following their FA Cup success last season.

The Tarkwa-based side are receiving all the plaudits for being the most impressive Ghanaian side in the first round of an African club competition.

And coach Paulette who only joined the side before the second half of the season has hailed the club’s organisation for their historic progress.

“I am very delighted to make it to the next round which is history for the club,” he said after the game on Sunday.

“This is the first time Medeama are making it to another level of football in Africa.

“This means the club was well structured and prepared to face Panthers and we hope to maintain this for the next round.”

Medeama will now be facing Moroccan side MAS in the next round of the Confederations Cup.
