AshantiGold CEO Kudjoe Fianoo is counting on new signing Emmanuel Baffour to power their First Capital Plus Premier League charge this season.Â
The Miners signed the 2011/2012 Premier League goal-king, who parted ways with South African Premier League side Mamelodi Sundowns, on a free transfer.
Baffour scored 21 goals for New Edubiase United to become the leagueâ€™s top scorer.
Fianoo believes the return of Baffour as made his side genuine title contenders.
â€œOur supporters have been without the title for 18 years. We have placed second twice and been in the top four on a few other occasions. But with the introduction of Baffour into our attacking department, the sky will be the limit,â€ Fianoo is quoted by the Graphic Sports.
â€œEven though we trail leaders Kumasi Asante Kotoko by seven points, the title race is far from over.
â€œPeople doubt our credentials but we all played the first round before Kotoko took that lead. In the same manner, Baffour and his team-mates can close the gap and win the title. We are still on course.â€
