The 21-year old is seeing the second round of the Ghana Premier League which starts after the 2013 Afcon as a turning point for the Porcupine WarriorsAsante Kotoko defender Gideon Baah is predicting a good second round of the Ghana Premier League for the defending champions.
The Porcupine Warriors finished the first round of the 2012-2013 season with a 2-1 win over Liberty Professionals on Sunday. The result pushed the Kumasi-based club to the third spot on the league log behind leaders Medeama and Aduana.
Baah, who saw less of the field action in the first round believes the Porcupine Warriors will be righting all the wrongs in 2012.
“We are making all efforts to correct the wrongs of 2012,” the defender posted on his blog. “Goals which were not scored, those which went agonisingly close and missed by a whisker, will enter the opponents' net in 2013. Goals which were conceded but were not supposed to be conceded won’t be conceded in 2013.”
“The memories of such a win will linger in our minds for the whole period of the Africa Cup of Nations and give us hope for the 2nd round of the league.”
Baah has already hinted he may switch positions soon on the field as a striker since coach Mas-Ud Didi Dramani has been fielding him as a forward during training sessions. He is positive something better will come out of it which can be of great benefit to Asante Kotoko.
He said: “My 'metamorphosis' into a forward is progressing well and I am enjoying it. I have coach Mas-Ud Dramani to thank for the things he sees in me.”
Baah could not hold back his feelings and described how he scored the goal.
“I scored a goal in our practice match with Kumasi Cornerstone this week. Well the commentators will say 'it was a screamer' (hahaha). In my attempt to control a pass, the ball bounced awkwardly and with my back to the opponent’s goal, I unleashed a pile driver past the keeper. You can imagine how elated I was. Something big is bound to happen in this new role I have been given (fingers crossed).”
