On being back again and his colleagues
Everything is going on well; we have been training for a while now. This game we know that it is an important game so we are just calmly getting ready and the squad is ready. The players are ready to give everything to get the three points on Saturday.
On Young talents and being with them
Coach was here years ago and I learnt a lot from him that took me to another level so I believe that these young boys, if they do what they have then do and does it right, they will have the opportunity to show the whole world what they can do. So I will just encourage them to work hard and help us win. We are all her to win, young, old, small. The coach has a thing to spot the young talents and give them the opportunity to play.
On return of Partey and Kudus
It is very important to have a full squad and for me they are back and fit from injury is a blessing and they have a chance to play. So for them to be back, I’m very happy and I hope that all the others can come back and join us to play the game.
Message to Ghanaians
We want to thank them for the last time against Ethiopia and they came in their numbers though with the COVID situation and the stadium cannot be fully packed but they came in their numbers which gave us the victory. We hope and pray that they will beach tomorrow in their numbers and we will make sure we give out everything to get the three points and put ourselves back on track.
