Ghana's No. 1

Ghanaian defender Yakubu Mohammed continues to make impact at Tanzanian side Azam FC

Published on: 27 December 2019

Ghanaian defender Yakubu Mohammed is making the desired impact with Azam FC after three years with the Tanzanian top-flight side.

Nicknamed 'The Buffalo' the former Aduana Stars defender's combative approach has made him one of the best defenders in the Tanzanian league, which is drawing interest from rival clubs.

Azam FC signed the defensive pillar in December 2016 and media reports in the East African country have credited him for the team's good performances.

Mohammed, who was the best defender in the 2015 GHALCA G6 after his stellar performance in the competition, caught the eyes of many football clubs who were then chasing after his signature.

The 24-year-old former Ghana U20 star three-year contract expired after the 2018/2019 season.

He recently penned down a two-year contract extension which will see him stay with the club until 2021.
