Former Hearts of Oak star Armah Senegal has backed Wafa to win the 2016-17 Ghana Premier League title despite being tied at the top of the log with Aduana.

The Sogakope-based club initially opened a five-point gap but their lead has been cut down by the Dormaa Ahenkro side after their matchday 22 game against Ashanti Gold in Obuasi was postponed.

Armah, who won several trophies with the Phobians, believes Wafa's form cannot be matched by any club.

"I think Wafa will win the league looking at their performance this season. The young players have proven a point after topping the log throughout the season," Armah told Base Radio in China.

"Aduana have the record of snatching the trophy even on final day of the season but with what Wafa have exhibited so far, I think Aduana can't repeat what they did in 2010 to win the trophy on last day.

"These Wafa players maybe very young but they've played together for quite a long time and such situations usually lead to success. They are destined to win the trophy so I will be surprised a bit if Aduana beat them to it but everything is possible in life," he added.

Armah has also advised Ghana Football Association to postpone the remaining league matches following the accident suffered by Asante Kotoko last week.

"From all indications, Kotoko will not be able to honour their game against Wafa on Sunday so I think the football association should suspend the remaining matches until further notice.

"Their game against Hearts of Oak last weekend couldn't take place because majority of their players are now recuperating so it will be better to suspend all the matches and hope they recover on time. We can't have outstanding games every matchday, it doesn't help competition since some clubs are fighting to avoid relegation while others are hunting for the league trophy," he added
