Asante Kotoko coach Seydou Zerbo into his maiden competitive contest has finally named his 22-man squad prior to the first round preliminary stage of CAF champions league group stages qualifier against the champions of his native land, RC Kadiogo.
The Burkinabe head coach list includes nine (9) newly recruited players who are expected to have their first feeling of action in an official encounter for the porcupine warriors.
