Former Bechem United striker Ahmed Simba Toure is set to prove his credentials to a new audience on Sunday as he makes his Asec Mimosas debut in a league match against AS Tanda.
The Côte d’Ivoire Ligue 1 leaders host 12th placed AS Tanda at Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny and Toure who is known for tormenting defenders as usual will be hoping to have a good start to his new career in Ivory Coast.
Asec leads the league log with 16 points in 7 games, just two points above Africa Sports who sit second on the log.
‘’I’ve been training with the team since joining them last in November and I must say I have enjoyed every bit of it and waiting patiently to make my debut and see how it goes’’ Toure tells sportsworldGhana.com.
As a striker it’s my duty to score goals to help my team win when the opportunity comes and that is exactly what I am going to do since I am here to help Asec Mimosas achieve something and also be part of the club’s history’’
Toure is likely to partner former WAFA striker Komla Agbeniadan as the Ivorian giants hope to widen up the gap between them and second side African Sports.
The ex- Bechem United striker joined the Ivorian giants on a two-year deal having excelled in his first season of the two-year deal with the Hunters at the end of the Ghana Premier League 2016/2017 season.
The former Kumasi Asante Kotoko striker enjoyed a good season with Bechem United in the Ghana Premier League after netting 13 times from 26 appearances.
