"Our target is Semi-Finals & the target is realistic. We want to make AshantiGold one of the best clubs in Africa. We want to make Ghanaians proud. We will come back with a victory. We are actually ready for the CAF Confederations cup.

AshantiGold have beefed up their team with new additions ahead of the competition. They have signed 2016 MTN FA Cup best player Yaw Anorl from Bechem United and 2016/17 Ghana Premier League top scorer Hans Kwofie has rejoined the club.
