Niger striker confident of impact in Ghana

Published on: 17 September 2011

Berekum Chelsea's Niger international Moussa Mohammed believes he is in the perfect club after scoring a double on his debut last week. 

The former Petro Atletico and Etoile Filante marksman led the Ghanaian league champions to a 2-1 win last Saturday in the pre-season GHALCA G8 tournament.

He has been bought to replace the club's top scorer for last season Emmanuel Clottey who will join Egyptian side ENNPI.

The Nigeria-born claims he has settled in well and ready for to spearhead the club's league title defence which begins in October.

"I feel like playing in my homeland because my team-mates and everyone around me has been very hospitable to me and everything is going on well for me at the moment,"

"I was born in Nigeria but opted to play for the Mena (Niger national team) and have also played in the Angolan league before I moved to Burkina Faso to join Etoile Filante but I am loving Ghana very very well."

"The footballers are very good which can help me also go to the top and am happy I scored two goals today on my debut so let’s wait for the season," he added.

    The strikers in Ghana are so bad that we now have to import some from a place like Niger. Oh my God, our juvenile coaches are not teaching our kids the basics and it destroying our game.

    What are you guys talking about..Most of our strikers are moving abroad so what do you want the clubs to do? It also shows how our local league is been recognized by the other countries as a force to be reckoned with.
