"It was not an easy game. We knew what we were up for against Aduana. We had to give them that respect, Aduana has been a good side. We all know they are still in the confederations cup. Actually, today itself I give them thumbs up for winning for the supporters of Kumasi Asante Kotoko," he said after the game.
"We dedicate the win to the fans of the club. The boys rose up to the occasion. We went in with a plan to get in our early goal. It's only in the second half that I thought we lost a bit of concentration by not keeping the ball properly and that was when the pressure kept mounting on us. But this guys defended very very well. It was a very good win. We wanted to win to put us in a good position in the first round," he added.
