Johnson Smith, Karela United coach

Karela United coach Johnson Smith says they are approaching their game against Kumasi Asante Kotoko in the finals of the Ghana Football Association Normalisation Special Competition with the same strategy and tactics they have been using.

The Anyinase-based club booked their ticket to the final of the competition after beating Ashantigold in the semi-final on Sunday in Obuasi.

The final game, according to the Normalisation Committee, will be played in Kumasi at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium which, on paper, seems to favour the Porcupine Warriors, but the technical head of Karela thinks otherwise.

“I have already done the job indoors so we have no problem where the game will be played. No team in Ghana is better than us; we will beat Kotoko,” he told Asempa Sports.

“We respect Kotoko, it’s a big team and one of the oldest teams in Ghana, but we are never afraid of them because the players playing for Kotoko are equally the same as Karela players,” he added.

The winner of the competition will represent Ghana in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League next season.
