Wa All Stars captain Hafiz Adams blames injuries for poor title defence

Published on: 27 June 2017

Captain of Wa All Stars Hafiz Adams insists injuries have affected their title defence tremendously, especially at the beginning of the season.

The Northern Blues have had a torrid season so far lying 11th on the table after 19 games. Key players Hafiz Mohammed, Mathew Mensah and Maxwell Baako were all on the treatment table at the beginning of the season rendering coach Adepa with limited options to choose from.

The team lost over the weekend to Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium. However, Captain Hafiz Adams believes they can make an impact with the 11 matches remaining.

"We started the season on a bad note because most of our players got injured even before the season started.

"About eight of our regular starters were not around when the league started, so we found it tough. It took us some time to get back. We have eleven matches to go and we have not given up", he said.

Wa All Stars will host Tema Youth in Match Day 20 of the Ghana Premier League in midweek. A game they Hafiz Adams hope will begin a renaissance.
