The Porcupine Warriors were asked to accept a plan to put off the Caf Confederation Cup preliminary match against a Cameroonian club

An official from Asante Kotoko says the Ghanaian club has rejected a request from Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) to postpone an upcoming Caf Confederation Cup fixture with one of its member club due to time constraint.

Kotoko have been scheduled to face the eventual winner of the Cameroonian FA Cup between Edding Sports and Lion Blesse, who will face off against each other on November 25.

The winner will travel to Ghana to take on Kotoko in the Caf Confederation Cup three days later.

“After management met, the decision is that we don't have the right to agree to such postponement and so if CAF accepts the postponement, we are okay with it but we can't agree to that looking at the preparations we have done,” Nana Kwame told Oyerepa FM.

“We have communicated such to the General Secretary of FECAFOOT who was in Kumasi to meet us.”

“Unfortunately we cannot accept the postponement but should CAF agree, we have no choice but to also adhere to the directives of the football governing body.”

The Porcupine Warriors, who represented Ghana in the previous edition of the competition, were cleared to play in upcoming edition due to the suspension of all football-related activities in the West African country.
