The Asante Kotoko former superstar says he is excited to face the Ghanaian club in the Caf Confederation Cup group stage

Asec Mimosas striker Amed 'Simba' Toure has admitted his excitement after they were paired with Ghana champions Aduana Stars in Group A of the Caf Confederation Cup.

The 28-year-old, who previously played for Asante Kotoko and Bechem United in the Ghana Premier League, will be making a return to the country on September 19 when they travel to the Nana Agyeman Badu Park for the first leg.

"It was a great feeling when I realised that my club has been paired with Aduana Stars in the Caf Confederation Cup. I was more excited because it provides another opportunity for me to return to Ghana," Toure told Oyerepa FM.

"I will be coming back to my second home and I believe we will have a great game. I always feel good playing in Ghana and against Ghanaian opponents," he added.

Toure, however, denied suggestions that he will return to the Ghana Premier League in future after some club's showed interest in his services.

"I have no plans to play in Ghana again because I believe that I've done my part over the years. I am happy at Asec and wishs to be here or move to Europe in the future.

"My goal is to help the club win the league this season and my next aim is to win the topscorer's award since I have already scored 11 goals in 16 matches. There are six matches remaining and I want to make good use of them."
