Rescue mission: Michael Tawiah fired up for new challenge in Serbia

Michael Tawiah has began a new life in Serbia with Borak Cacak with the arrival of the Ghanaian midfielder seen as the tonic to spark life into their fight for survival in Super Liga.

Tawiah who has played in Bulgaria for a host of clubs since arriving in Europe in 2009, switched countries during January’s transfer window after joining Borak Cacak from Haskovo in a bid to help the Serbian club in the bid to stay up.

And to say the 24 year old’s arrival has brought a good omen could yet be a huge understatement as Tawiah’s first game for the Borak as the second round of Super Liga resumed last Saturday ended in a 1-0 victory away to Donji Srem who also featured two other Ghanaians, former Hearts of Oak captain, Moro Abubakar and Rashod Abdul Obuobi.

Not only did it help complete the double for Borak over Srem, it was their first win since 30 August last year, a period spanning 13 league games and only their third victory all season long.

The three points also helped Borak move out of the relegation zone ahead of Donji Srem on goal difference, 16 points apiece from 16 games.

Now Tawiah says his side which’s only home win came against the same Donji Srem back on August 9, will go on a winning run, powered by his workaholics in midfield.

“‘It’s a new challenge and I need it after so many years in Bulgaria. It definitely won’t be easy but from the way we played on Saturday and what I’ve seen of my teammates in training, I think we can do far better,” Tawiah told exclusively from his Serbian base.

” Our main target is to fight against relegation but with 14 matches more remaining in the season, I have no doubt that we can win more matches to get into the top half on the league table,” he added full of confidnece. Follow @thedonplato
