Kumasi, July 10, GNA – Ghana’s Premier League
defending champions, Wa All Stars, has publicly admitted that the team is out
of this year’s league title race.

Skipper Hafiz Adams told the GNA Sports in
Kumasi that, their focus was to battle for a respectable position on the league
table.

“For now, it is all over for us, and All Stars
are focusing on a top four place”, he added.

The Upper West Region-based team made history
by defying the odds to win the 2015/2016 premier league, the first time ever, a
team from the three Northern Region had achieved that feat.

They have however, been struggling since the
beginning of the 2016/2017 league – lost their all-conquering form and
currently occupying the 12th position on 25 points.

All Stars are 15 points behind the league
leaders, WAFA, and with nine matches to go, it is simply impossible for them to
defend the title.

Skipper Adams attributed their unimpressive
performance to injuries, and said about eight of the key players, including
himself, suffered various forms of injury in the initial stages of the league.

“Any team which experiences the magnitude of
such a loss will definitely find the going tough”, he added.

He underlined their determination to work hard
to win their remaining matches to finish in the top four.
