ASEC to arrive today for Kotoko test

Ivorian top flight side ASEC Mimosas will touch down at the Kotoka International Airport today ahead of their clash with Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The two clubs would vie for the Otumfuo Cup as part of activities marking the 20th anniversary celebration of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, since ascension onto the throne as Asantehene.

Siaka Traoré, coach of the side would lead a 30-man contingent that includes; management team, technical staff and the playing body into the country.

Asec Mimosas would fly to Kumasi on the same day for the match via a domestic airline.

The 2017/18 Ivorian champions are expected to be part of the delegation that would call on Otumfuo Osei Tutu II tomorrow after which they round up their training schedules for the match.

Former striker of Asante Kotoko, Ahmed Simba Toure would be out to haunt his former club, when he returns to familiar grounds, where he was a former cult figure during two different stints with Kotoko.

Kotoko on the other hand, have enjoyed a good run since coach Charles Akonnor took charge of the club seven months ago.

Akonnor is expected to keep faith with his leading marksman Abdul Fatawu Safiu, who has been in fine scoring form in the special competition, with Felix Annan, Augustine Sefah, Amos Frimpong, Sogne Yacouba and Emmanuel Gyamfi.

Primeval Media, organisers of the match would charge GH¢10.00 for the Popular Stand and the Centre Line with the VIP going for GH¢50.00. –GNA
