AshantiGold new coach Roberto Landi is hopeful his team will fare better than they did last time around in the CAF Confederation Cup.
The club’s last participation in Africa in the 2019/20 CAF Confederation Cup came to an abrupt end in the preliminary stages after they got eliminated by Moroccan club RS Berkane.
The team was slated for not going far in the competitions by its supporters and they have another chance to make amends.
This comes after Ghana Football Association have given them the green light to represent the country in the CAF Confederation following the truncation of 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season.
According to the Miners head coach, they will seek to improve on their past appearances and go beyond the group stages.
Speaking to Oyerepa FM, he noted that he has been keeping in touch with the players and technical staff of the club as they prepare ahead of next season.
“I am waiting for the borders of Ghana to be opened so I can return but I have been keeping in touch with my players, other technical team members and hope they are training as I have scheduled for them,” Landi said.
“We want to do better than what AshGold did last time in the Confederations Cup, we will do our best but hope COVID-19 does not affect us.
The former Liberia and Qatar U23 coach disclosed that he will strengthen the team with new additions before the continental campaign begins.
“I wish I was in Ghana to monitor their training. We will add new players especially those who will give revenue to the club.”
