Amed 'Simba' Toure has hailed the work done by Bechem United to keep the side in the Ghana Premier League.

The Hunters needed a 1-0 victory at home on final day against Great Olympics and Toure, who netted the lone goal, admitted his excitement and praised his colleagues.

“I’m very happy for the win, it was not an easy game against Great Olympics but we were determined to win. Not only I did the job but my colleagues also worked hard for this victory and we got it,” Toure told Footballmadeinghana.

“I want to thank the management and supporters of the club for their support. We wanted to win no matter the performance,” he said.

He added: “I am very happy for my performance this season. My target was not to win the goal king because I missed about seven games but I still scored thirteen goals and I’m very happy.

“I went four games without scoring a goal but I was sure I will score today and I did that. I’m very happy for that and all my teammate who helped me.”

Toure finished as third best scorer behind Hans Kwofie who netted 17 times and Berekum Chelsea's Stephen Sarfo who also scored 15 goals.
