The ex-Porcupine Warrior sheds light on how the club can become a force to reckon with in continental inter-club competitions

Former Asante Kotoko defender Frimpong Manso has shared his thoughts on how the Porcupine Warriors can once again become giants of continental inter-club competitions.

The Kumasi-based side have struggled to make an impact on the big stage since reaching the final of the 2004 Caf Confederation Cup. 

Their latest attempt - this season - ended in a preliminary round elimination at the hands of Congolese side CARA Brazzaville.  

"If you want to conquer Africa, you need consistency," Manso told Kessben FC

"You have to win your home-based league, maintain a consistent team squad and beef up with quality players. 

"But in situations where you sell your good players and struggle to replace them, then it will lead to nowhere.

"For Kotoko to compete well in Africa, they need a standing team that have played together for at least three seasons. 

"By doing that, every player needs to be satisfied before a good result can be achieved in Africa."

Kotoko are two-time winners (1970 and 1983) of the African Champions League as well as four-time runners-up.

They also came second in the defunct African Cup Winners Cup in 2002.
