The Confederation Cup is important and i've come to help the club- Yacouba

Asante Kotoko forward Sogne Yacouba says he is willing to help the club make an impact when the CAF Confederation Cup campaign begins.

Yacouba has been in his native of Burkina Faso for the last two weeks, where it is believed he was granted the permission to perform his marital rites.

The 26-year-old hitman will rejoin his teammates in training as they continue preparations of the CAF Confederations Cup.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, Yacouba discloses the reason why he left the club’s camp and insists he is back to help the Porcupine Warriors do well in the competition.

“I was permitted to go to my hometown for two weeks to marry.”

“Unfortunately, I got ill and that's why I kept longer but now I’m in town and that's the most important”

“The most important is the CAF Confederation Cup and I have come to help the club play.”

“We are waiting for our opponents and we will prepare for them.”

“I know I will score but can't say the number.”

The Burkinabe import has taken the local scene by storm since joining the Porcupine Warriors from Malian side Stade Malien at the start of the truncated 2017/18 Ghana Premier League campaign.

The striker has found the back of the net 11 times in 13 appearances for the Reds.
