Inter Allies midfield Kingpin, Desmond Abuga has expressed his readiness and personal ambition for the upcoming 2020/21 Ghana Premier season.
The combative midfielder was scintillating for Inter Allies before the 2019/20 Premier season was annulled due to the coronavirus pandemic that brought global activities to a standstill.
Heading into the new season, the midfielder in an interview with MahamaShaibu.com has expressed his desire to eclipse last season’s performances.
“I was in fine form before the league was annulled. Going into the new season, I think I need to put in more effort, win more man of the match awards and score more goals,” Abuga told MahamaShaibu.com
Abuga confessed that it is not going to be an easy season for Inter Allies since they’ve lost key man, Victorien Adebayor to Danish outfit FC Koge, Abraham Okyere to UAE side Al Hilal and Samuel Armah to Albanian fold KF Skenderbeu.
“I know it’ll be difficult for us this season because we’ve lost players, including our key player [Victorien Adebayor]. But I believe we will do well once we get replacements.
He continued: “We are going to miss Adebayor, because he’s our goal scorer. His departure is going to worry us but once we get someone who can finish or score goals for us, we will adapt and move on.”
Despite admitting it is not going to be an easy season for his outfit, the midfield dynamo, who rose from the youth ranks of Inter Allies, Cedar Stars Academy to cement a place in the first team believes they have a team that is good enough to achieve a mid-table finish.
He went on to beg on the board to recruit new players, especially in attack, where they’ve lost Victorien Adebayor and Samuel Armah.
