Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has urged Asante Kotoko to conquer Africa by winning the CAF Champions League.
The Asantehene, the club’s life patron, will welcome the board of directors, management, and playing body to Manhyia Palace on Monday.
Kotoko presented the Ghana Premier League trophy to the Asantehene, who was impressed with the club’s title triumph.
Kotoko will compete in Africa next season as a result of winning the championship, and Otumfuo has urged the team to win the trophy.
The last time Kotoko won the title was in 1983.
“I congratulate you for winning the league title, now, you are going to Africa, I will urge you, the CEO, coach and the players to win Africa because it’s been a while since I laid hands on the title.”
“As a team, you need to remain united to be able to succeed,” he said.
Kotoko were awarded the Ghana Premier League trophy on Sunday evening following their 3-0 victory over Elmina Sharks at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
Left-back Ibrahim Imoro scored a stunning free-kick on 26 minutes to give Kotoko a halftime lead.
Kotoko came out of the break determined to score more goals, and Cameroonian attacker Mfegue Omgba delivered, scoring twice in the final 12 minutes.
Kotoko will conclude their campaign in Accra against Accra Lions, while relegated Sharks will host Great Olympics.
