Kotoko Monitoring Two Top Foreign Goalkeepers As Possible Replacement For Felix Annan
In the wake of the 2020/21 CAF Champions League, Asante Kotoko are reportedly monitoring two national team goalkeepers as possible replacement for captain, Felix Annan who is on the verge of leaving the club.
Felix Annan has one year only left in his recently signed two years contract extension with the Porcupines. Opoku Afriyie Richmond disclosed on the Rush Hour Sports Show on Fox FM that the former WAFA safest pair of hands has a foreign contract offer on his table, in which the player is keen to grab the opportunity.
In spite of that, Asante Kotoko has turned attention to two national team goalkeepers in West Africa, who participated in the 2019 WAFU Tournament held in Senegal last year.
San Pedro and Ivorian U23 goalkeeper, Eliezer Ira Tape and Burkina Faso national team goalkeeper, Baba Toure Aboubakar Sawadogo have been pencilled down as the possible replacement for Annan if he leaves the club.
Ira Tape was in post when San Pedro eliminated Asante Kotoko from last season’s CAF Confederation Cup as well as Ivory Coast’s U23 Africa Cup of Nations held in Egypt last year.
Sawadogo on the hand was the goalkeeper when Burkina Faso eliminated Ghana from CHAN after securing a 1-0 victory in Ghana last year.
Annan recently lost his number 1 position to Black Meteors goalie Kwame Baah during the truncated 2019/2020 Ghana premier league.
