The youngster highlights his ambitions with the Porcupine Warriors

Asante Kotoko teenage goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad is looking to make the most of his limited opportunities at the club.

The 15-year-old has become a contender for the Porcupine Warriors' No.1 spot following impressive performances for Ghana at last year's Africa Under-17 Cup of Nations and the Fifa World Cup tournaments.

He was the Black Starlets' first choice shot-stopper at both events.

"I'm like a soldier - always ready for battle," Danlad told Kessben FM.

"I will not disappoint the coach [Steve Pollack] if he gives me the chance.

"Felix Annan and Ernest Sowah are my seniors and I'm learning from them. 

"But whenever the coach chooses me to be in post, I will not let him and the supporters of Kotoko down.

"Playing for the national team and at tournaments like the African Youth Championship (U-17 Afcon) and World Cup has helped me a lot."

Danlad could be handed his first major Kotoko responsibility in the upcoming Ghalca G8 tournament, which kicks off on Saturday.
