Bankroller of King Faisal Babies Alhjai Karim Grusah has cautioned Asante Kotoko to be wary of Kariobangi Sharks in the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday.
The Kenyan will be seeking to knock out the Porcupine Warriors after a first leg 0-0 draw last week at the Kasarani MISC Stadium.
According to Grusah, the Ghanaian side cannot drop their guard in the game as the Kenyan side need a goal to progress.
“Kotoko is not guaranteed an automatic victory in the game on Saturday so they should prepare well and their supporters need to lower expectations,” Grunsah told Goal.
“Kariobangi Sharks may not be the biggest or strongest club from Kenya but they can cause a major upset if they are underestimated. Any goal from them in the second leg can bring pressure on Kotoko so they must be very careful not to concede at home.
“Even if they will concede a goal, I believe it should be a consolation since that can’t affect their ambition of making it to the next round. Kotoko must make Ghana proud by trying their best to avoid a shock and make it to the group stage, ” he added.
Kotoko were finalists in the competition in 2004 and last made it to the group stage in 2008.
