Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have announced securing the services of talented attacker Augustine Okrah to strengthen the team ahead of the 2019/20 Caf Champions League, which starts next month.
The 25-year-old returns to the club he once joined at age 17. He was forced out by a lack of game time and eventually excelled at Bechem United where he emerged top scorer of the 2013/14 Ghana Premier League with 16 goals.
Kotoko have been drawn against Nigerian side, Kano Pillars in the first preliminary round match. The addition Okrah to the team comes in with a groundswell of experience having played for usual Caf inter-club competition campaigners, Al Merreikh and Al-Hilal of Sudan (between 2014 and 2018).
Kotoko’s Accra Representative, Edmund Ackah confirmed the signing of Okrah late Tuesday indicating that the necessary documentation for the player’s recruitment and registration have all been duly procured and worked on.
Okrah was at the club secretariat, donning the famous red jersey full of smiles and brimming with confidence as he prepared to join his teammates for preparation for the away fixture against Kano Pillars on the weekend of August 9 to 11.
