Kumasi Asante Kotoko head coach Kjetil Zachariassen has named a final 18-man squad for the trip to Sousse, Tunisia for the second leg of their CAF Champions League game against Etoile Sportive du Sahel on Sunday.
The squad is, at the time of writing, on the way to Accra where they’ll enplane to Morocco on Thursday before continuing to Tunisa same day to prepare for the match on Sunday.
Star striker Sogne Yacouba lost his place to Naby Keita who have returned to the team after missing the first leg at the Baba Yara sports stadium due to suspension. It is unclear why the Norwegian coach Zachariassen opted for Keita ahead of the Burkinabe talisman, but reports say the coach’s decision was based on lack of match fitness on the side of Yacouba, who has won the hearts of the Porcupine Warriors fans.
Below is the full list of the squad:
Goakeepers (2): Felix Annan, Osei Kwame
Defenders (5): Patrick Yeboah, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, Habib Mohammed, Empem Dacosta, Evans Owusu
Midfielders (8): Kelvin Andoh, Godfred Asiamah, Emmanuel Gyamfi, Samuel Frimpong, Augustine Okrah, Jordan Opoku, Didi Arnold, Justice Blay
Strikers (3): George Abege, Naby Keita, Richard Arthur.
