Aduana coach Yusif Abubakar calls for unity

Published on: 09 November 2016

Newly-appointed head coach of Aduana Stars, Yusif Abubakar, has called for unity of purpose and total support from all stakeholders if the club is to succeed.

“I am ready to give of my best so that the belief the owner of the club had in me would not be in vain. Therefore, we must all unite and contribute to the success of the club,” Coach Abubakar said.

The former Techiman City coach, who last Monday formally signed a two-year contract with the Dormaa-based club, indicated his resolve not to impose anything on the existing technical team but rather called for co-operation.

“I now want to assess both players and technical team to know if there must be any additions or not. We will also work on maintaining the form of the team which propelled them to the second position on the league log and possibly improve on it,” Coach Abubakar noted.

He said that was a challenge to both the technical team and the playing body.

He appealed to the supporters of the club to stand solidly behind the team, pointing out that, “as a traditional club for the area, the club is for the fans as well and so coaches will come and go but the fans must work to contribute to the success of the club”.

Coach Abubakar further expressed appreciation to the Omanhene of Dormaa -Ahenkro, Oseadeeyo Agyeman-Badu and the entire Aduana Stars family for believing in him.

Coach Abubakar, who has had stints with Accra Hearts of Oak, Heart of Lions and others, was the head coach of Techiman City Football Club in the Ghana Premier League last season.
