Owu brands WAFA as ‘stubborn’ 

Ashanti Gold shot-stopper, George Owu, has labelled league leaders West African Football Association (WAFA) as the most troublesome and worrisome club in the league at the moment.

The former Asante Kotoko goalie believes that the Sogakope-based club has matured in their style of play, which has manifested in them occupying the top summit of the league.

They’ve been a hard nut to crack with opponents struggling to break down their defence and silky play.

“The most stubborn team in the league at the moment is the WAFA team,” Owu told Abusu FM.

“They are young boys and always prevent opponents from playing to their own style. In view of this, they boss the game and play what suits them.”

“We [Ashanti Gold] are hoping to overcome them easy with no trouble on Sunday.”

Owu was adjudged NASCO Player of the Month for June after recording four clean sheets, picked 12 points out of 12 and subsequently saved a penalty in Tarkwa in their clash against Medeama SC.

“We are hoping to escape relegation by working hard. Gradually, we are climbing high the ladder. It’s our hope to place the team at a respectful position.

“The next four to five matches ahead of us will decide.”

The clash between Ashanti Gold and WAFA has been postponed by the FA because the latter has seven players called to the Black Stars B for their friendly game against Togo.
