Inter Allies attacker Victorien Adebayor has disclosed that he made a decision to play in the Ghana Premier League to further his career and not seek pleasures or explore the country for fun.
The leading goal scorer in the Ghana Premier League was reacting to winning the Nasco GPL player of the month award for February. He explained that what inspires him to deliver top notch performances is the desire to secure a move abroad in the immediate future.
“Since the league started, I told myself I am not in Ghana for the fun. My work here is to play football to the best of my abilities and hopefully secure a move abroad to further my career and that’s why I put in the efforts”
On winning the player of the month award, the Nigerien expressed delight that his hard work has been appreciated and credited his teammates for his inspired performance in the league.
“I am happy. I am really happy about the awards. I put in a lot of hard work on the field and my efforts have been appreciated for which I am grateful to Allah. I am not done here. I will continue to put in performances.”
“I will want to thank my teammates who help me a lot. They supply me with the balls and that allow me play my game and score goals. We work as a team and I am very happy about that.”
Adebayor who is arguably the biggest star attraction in the league, won the award for the best player for the month of February after he recorded 7 goals, 5 assists and three MVPs within the period.
