Asante Kotoko is calling on its fans and the entire populace to troop to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Saturday when the team host Kariobangi Sharks of Kenya in the Confederations Cup.
In an interview with Class FM in Accra ahead of the crucial tie, communications director for the Asante Kotoko, Lawyer Sarfo Duku has made a passionate appeal to the public to offer their support to the club by making their way to the Baba Yara this Saturday.
“We are making this humble appeal that if they have any contribution to make this is the best form of contribution they can offer the team. That is by supporting the team on Sunday”, Lawyer Sarfo Duku said.
“We need the numbers because this is a Kariobangi Sharks side that cannot boast of even 5,000 supporters in the first leg. So the advantage that we have now is that we have the numbers for that. So you will have to come to support us to diffuse them”.
Kotoko managed to return from Kenya after the first leg with a goalless.
The draw in Kenya means the Porcupine Warriors need a victory on Saturday in Kumasi to qualify for the next stage of the competition.
