Aduana goalkeeper Addo happy with performance in GPL

Aduana Stars
The Fire Club are top of the log after three games without conceding a goal, leaving the shot-stopper satisfied with his performance

Aduana Stars goalkeeper Joseph Addo says he is happy with his performance so far in the 2017 Ghana Premier League.

The 26-year-old has gone three games without conceding a goal, with Aduana topping the log with nine points following wins over Ashanti Gold, Elimina Sharks and Bolga All Stars.

''I am excited with my performance in the three games played so far. If a goalkeeper doesn't concede or concede few goals, there is a possibility that his team will be winning the league title and that is what I want to achieve,'' Addo said.

''We have set a target of winning our first five games of the season in order to win the league and we are determined to achieve it after three games. It is also my personal target to keep as many clean sheets. It won't be easy but with determination anything is possible," he added.

Addo displaced former Ghana first-choice goalkeeper Stephen Adams, who has been with the club for almost a decade, attributing his fine form to serious personal training.

''Stephen Adams is a very good goalkeeper so I decided to double my training sessions to be able to claim the starting role. He is very experienced because he has been with the club for a very long time. His presence on the bench also motivates me to double my efforts because I know a little mistake may see me with the substitutes."

He added: ''I’m ready for a call-up to the Black Stars in the future. It will be an honour to represent my country and every footballer wants to have that opportunity."

Addo picked up an injury against Bolga on Wednesday and would have to pass a late fitness test as Aduana travel to Sogakope to lock horns with Wafa on Saturday.
