Fosa Juniors coach Bob Kootwijk has conceded that facing Aduana Stars in the playoff round of the CAF Confederation Cup will be tough work.
The Madagascar cup champions have beaten AFC Leopards (Kenya) and AS Port Louis 2000 (Mauritius) thus far in the second-tier continental competition.
However, if they are to get the group stage they will need to overcome Ghanaian champions Aduana Stars, who ‘dropped’ into the Confed Cup after suffering a first-round defeat in the Champions League.
“I’m not sure we can qualify. We will try our best and we will look forward to this. I don’t know if it’s the same [playing in Ghana compared to their previous experience]. We will be playing our own game,” the Dutch coach told Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, as quoted by Ghanasoccernet.
The Fosa Juniors coach added that he is in the process of gathering information on the Ghanaian side, ahead of the two-legged tie on April 6-8 and 17-18.
“I’m busy doing that and by the time we play them, we will know them more. We don’t have much experience but I don’t think it’s a problem. We’ve an intelligent team and we look forward to face teams in Africa,” he said.
“I [will] search for information and look at how they play. We [will] play our own game and we will see what will happen. We are now looking for logistics to come to Ghana.”
