Hot Ghana Premier League striker sends warning to Asante Kotoko ahead of tough domestic clash

Ghana Premier League striker Yahaya Mohammed has sent a warning to his former side Asante Kotoko ahead of league clash on Sunday evening.

Kotoko welcome Aduana Stars to MatchDay 10 fixture of the Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium and have been made aware of the threat ahead of them.

Matches between the two are often closely fought encounters with a certain difficulty in predicting which side emerges conqueror over the other.

Asante Kotoko is in a rich vein of form under interim boss Johnson Smith, with the former Karela gaffer going unbeaten so far in 5 league matches.

For Aduana Stars, they have had a patchy run not befitting of a title contender. They have however worked around their form and are beginning to look like their former self.

Yahaya Mohammed has acknowledged their challenges but believes Aduana Stars are currently making steady progress in climbing out of their challenging beginning to the season.

“We had difficulties at the start due to issues with the contracts of some of the players. Gradually we are getting back on top,” he told Wontumi TV.

According to Yahaya Mohammed, games against Asante Kotoko or Hearts are always tricky ones that require special preparation.

“Matches against the likes of Hearts and Kotoko are always of high profile nature. Your preparation should be very high because all eyes will be on that match,” he said.

“We are not going in to lose. Our worst will be a draw. Don’t be surprised when we record our first away win this season. This will be our first away win against Kotoko,” Yahaya Mohammed boldly declared.

A win for Yahaya’s Aduana Stars especially at the Accra Sports Stadium would be difficulty as Kotoko last beat Liberty Professional 2-0 at the same venue in their last home game.

Yahaya played for Kotoko between 2011 and 2015 before joining Aduana Stars in 2016 after a loan spell at Amiduas Professionals. The center forward has netted 30 goals in 42 Premier League games over his Aduana career.

On 7 August 2007, young Yahaya was called up by Ghana Coach Claude Le Roy for a FIFA International friendly match against Senegal in the New Den Stadium in London, UK on 21 August 2007.

Hardwork and perseverance awarded him a wonderful opportunity yet again in Ghana’s national football team squad that competed at the 2011 African Nations Championship.
