“Again; we’re going to Africa and our target for Bash is to take us to the money zone. It has been a long time since we played in Africa and because of our lost four slots as Ghanaians; we want him to mastermind a brilliant performance by leading us to the group stages. With this, I’m sure we shall reclaim our four slots back. For now, this is our target for him.” he reiterated.
