Speaking in an interview with Kumasi based Fox Fm, Toure said the Ivorian side have bought very well this season poaching the best players from across Ivory Coast Asante Kotoko should beware.

"Kotoko have to score more goals in Ghana, at least 3-0, 4-0 will make Kotoko free going into the second leg in Abidjan. Kotoko will have to take more advantage of the the first leg at home.
They've made lots of recruitment this season, they have bought most of the experience teams in the Ivorian league and they are good". he said.

Ahmed Toure has played on three different times for  Asante Kotoko first in 2007-2008, 2011-2012 and lastly in 2014-2016.
