Kotoko Coach Heaps Praise On Defender Awal Mohammed

Asante Kotoko boss Maxwell Konadu has tipped defender Awal Mohammed to be a �world class� player and insists his potential is yet to blossom. The centre-back has put up some resolute performances for the porcupine warriors in the season. But he was heavily criticized over a blunder which cost the side maximum points in the Premier league game at Berekum Arsenals. He is expected to marshal the defence of the Kumasi-based club when the make a six-hour journey to Accra to face arch rivals Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League derby. Konadu claims the strong defender has peaked and reckons he will be a strong force in the world. �He is a fantastic defender and trusts me he�ll become one of the finest defenders in the world with serious training. �He just needs to understand some few things while on the pitch and if he�s able to get that, he�ll be fine. �He is one of the players I fancy will be a great addition to the Black Stars in future. Indeed, I think he�s fit to play for the team at next year�s Africa Cup of Nations.�
