- Former Asante Kotoko coach, Frimpong Manso, says he believes his former side are in a tight condition ahead of their second leg game against Al Hilal in Sudan.

The Ghana Premier League side must fight to overturn their 1:0 defeat in the first leg at the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.

However, Frimpong Manso says, Kotoko can frustrate the Sudanese side to progress to the group phase of the competition but insisted the "Kotoko" Warriors are in a difficult position to win on Wednesday.

Talking on Wontumi Radio, He said, "Kotoko can win also in Sudan but it will not come easy."

"Kotoko will open up to be able to score but Hilal will also come with all guns blazing because they are playing at home but this is football and I believe everything can happen. All is not lost but from where I stand, It looks very difficult for Kotoko to win in Sudan looking at what has happened", he added.

Kotoko players on Tuesday morning boycotted training due to unpaid per diems. However, calm was restored at the camp of the team by the leader of delegation, Nana Oduro Sarfo, who is an Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association [GFA].

Kotoko have not played in the group phase of the CAF for the past fourteen (14) years.
