Duncan names 16 players for Kotoko trip to Libya

Asante Kotoko head coach David Duncan has named 16 players for the team’s pre-season trip to Libya.

The porcupine warriors who are also participating in the on-going Ghalca-Six tournament have had to raise two teams in order to be able to honour an agreement to play Libyan giants Al-Ittihad Tripoli in two scheduled international friendlies next week.

Coach Duncan has opted to choose ten players from the starting line-up that thrashed Berekum Chelsea 3-0 in their opening G-6 game on Friday.

The 16-player list also includes five youngsters from the junior ranks (U-17) namely; Kaisan Yuisu, Richmond Opoku Manu, Isaac Agyenim Boateng, Akwasi Nti and Amos Ako-Ese.
