will lift up their game in the finals of the ongoing West African Football

and  was convinced the finals would see
an improved side.

“I have been
with this team for the past six years and I can say that they keep improving
year after year and match after match.

“We didn’t
start preparations early for this tournament, but our game has been improving
and we believe we would play a much better and improved football than we did in
the last game, though we won, they played better than us” he said.

The former
Asante Kotoko coach said he had only one player from the team that won the 2017
edition available in his current squad, which makes the team entirely new but
they were up to the task.

“We have only
one member with us now from the 2017 squad. Though it’s a new team we have been
able to put ourselves together to compete in this tournament and we are
confident of maintaining the trophy”.
