Ghana's Chelsea draw inspiration from England's Chelsea

Date: 10-May-2012












Berekum Chelsea hope to prolong their stay in the CAF Champions League by eliminating Coton Sport of of Cameroon this weekend.

The two sides meet in the return clash of the second round after drawing goalless in the first leg in Berekum.

Coach of the Ghanaian side, Hans Van Der Pluym is confident that his side can score against Coton Sport and sail through to the group stage of the competition.

However, Pluym is drawing inspiration from the achievements of his side's English namesake, Chelsea, who pulled a shocking victory against Barcelona over two legs in the UEFA Champions League semi-final tie last month.

"This tie is far from over. Nothing is impossible in football, look what Chelsea achieved in Barcelona against all odds," the Dutch coach said.

"Obviously, the best chance of victory usually comes at home, but we have to concentrate on the second leg in Cameroon and make sure we progress to bring pride to Ghana. The result hinges on the commitment and determination of my players and they normally deliver when pushed. Football is unpredictable and nothing is impossible," he added.

“All is not lost yet. We can go there (Garoua), score and qualify. It is possible.”

The winner in the Garoua match will clinch a place in the mini-league phase with a guaranteed $400,000 prize money while the losers will be given a second chance in the Confederation Cup.

We will win the CAF Champs league: Emmanuel Clottey



Berekum Chelsea striker Emmanuel Clottey is confident his side can clinch the CAF Champions League title.

The dethroned Ghanaian Champions defeated Cameroonian side CotonSport 2-1 to qualify to the group phase of the competition on Sunday.

A goalless draw in the first leg in Berekum, two weeks ago, coupled with Cotton Sports’ pedigree of often reaching the semi finals of the competition gave Chelsea slim hopes of qualifying in Garoua.

Striker Emmanuel Clottey opened the scoring at Garoua before Captain Abdul Basit increased the tally before the home side pulled one back.

According to Clottey, their win over Cotonsport has boosted their confidence to clinch their first ever African title.

“With the quality of players we have now, I strongly believe we will win this competition”. He told JOY Sports

“This is our first time playing in the Champions league and with the progress so far I’m confident we can win the tournament”.

Emmanuel Clottey has scored six of Chelsea's 12 goals so far in the competition to lead the goal chart in the competition.

kebashorificatious, stop your colonial level thinking. No such thing as Black Africa vs. "White" Africa :lol: :lol: :lol: or is it Arab Africa?

There is only Africa. The colonial distinction has been rendered absurd in the modern era. These days people think more about development and put the divisive thinking of the Colonial era behind them.

FA thrilled with Chelsea progress in CL

Date: 14-May-2012












CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE TO BEREKUM CHELSEA

On behalf of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), I would like to take this opportunity to join the people of Ghana in congratulating Berekum Chelsea for reaching the group stage of the CAF Champions League.

Your victory over CotonSport in Cameroon is an important achievement for our country because for the first time in six years a Ghanaian club has qualified for the group stage of the competition.

Following the goalless draw in the first-leg in Berekum two weeks ago some wrote off your chances but your victory in Garoua shows that where there is determination, will and commitment, there is success.

Your achievement will go a long way to re-energise Ghanaian clubs who participate in continental competitions in future.

Please convey to coach Hans Van der Pluym, captain Abdul Basit and the entire team our congratulations and we want to encourage them to go on and bring the title home.

On our part as the GFA we will continue to offer our support to your team as we have done since the competition started.

Once again I congratulate you on this wonderful moment and sincerely wish there is more to come.

Signed

Kwesi Nyantakyi

President

Ghana Football Association

Clottey leads goal-king in Champions League

Date: 14-May-2012












Emmanuel Clottey took his goal tally in the CAF Champions League to six after helping Berekum Chelsea reach the group stage in their debut in the continent's most prestigious club competition.

He has scored six of Chelsea's 12 goals so far in the competition to lead the goal chart in the competition.

And he scored one of Chelsea's crucial goals in their 2-1 win on Sunday against Coton Sport to extend that qualified them to the mini-league which guarantees them a $400,000 prize money.

The striker started his fine scoring form when he got a brace in their preliminary round 3-0 win against Liberia’s LISCR.

Clottey followed up with a hat-trick at home in their 5-0 win against Raja Casablanca of Morocco in the first round.

"We are excited and me for instance, it's my first shot at the Champions League. I am happy with the performance. The quality of players we have gives me hope that we can go to the finals and win the cup," Clottey said.

The competition takes almost two months off before returning with six group matches and then a two-legged semi-final and final.

I won't be surprised if Berekum Chelsea wins CAF Cup - Kyeremeh


Emmanuel Kyeremeh, President of Berekum Chelsea Football Club, has said he would not be surprised if his side wins the 2012 Confederation of Africa Confederation (CAF) Champions League.

Speaking in an interview few hours after the team's return from Cameroon with a shocking 2-1 victory over Coton Sports in the second leg of the 1/8th round to qualify for the money zone, on Sunday night, he said Berekum Chelsea has the quality in terms of materials to win the trophy.

The President of the Club said that his side, which is made up of experienced and young talented players, have the character to stand the might of any team in the competition.

Kyeremeh said the players have also given him full assurance that they would make Ghana proud on the continent once more, adding that he is counting on their pledge and the quality of the team to win the second CAF Champions League trophy by a Ghanaian Club after Hearts of Oak's feat in 2000.

He gave the assurance that the management would put in place the necessary measures for the playing body to enable them to realize the dream of winning the trophy.

“I believe in my players, I know what they are capable of doing when given the opportunity. I have no doubt that Berekum Chelsea would emerge champions of the competition.” He stated.

Asked if he gave up hope after the team drew in the first leg on their home grounds, Kyeremeh said he never doubted the ability of his players, adding that he knew they would surely qualify.

He said the Cameroonians played a tight game in the first leg and packed the defence, but was convinced they were going to open up in the second leg so his side could capitalize on that.

Kyeremeh said that the team would intensify its preparations for the task ahead.

Coach Hans Vans der Plyum who was delighted with the feat of his side, said they have exhibited a championship character by winning in an ‘opponent’s territory.

“With self believe, I think my players have what it takes to win the competition. All we need is to prepare well for the group stages.” He stated.**

Berekum Chelsea team to receive huge bonus for Champs League feat
Posted On Monday, 14th May 2012
By Ameenu Shardow

The Berekum Chelsea team will receive mouth watering rewards for qualifying to the group stage of the CAF Champions League.

The dethroned Ghana Premier League champions recorded an impressive 2-1 away win over Cameroonian side Coton Sport on Sunday to make it into the money zone in their debut African campaign.

The team was promised massive rewards if they qualify for the group stage and the club president Emmanuel Kyeremeh says he will make do with his promise to motivate his boys ahead if what will certainly be a sterner test in the group stage.

“The boys were promised their bonus if they qualify. It means no winning bonus have been paid so far in this campaign,” he said.

“The win over the Liberian side, over Raja Casablanca were all not rewarded for because we told them bonus will only be paid if qualification is realized.

“So now that they have qualified, we will give them what is due them to motivate them ahead of matches in the group stage.”

Chelsea becomes the first Ghanaian side in six years after Hearts of Oak to make it through to the competition’s group stage.
