Asante Kotoko defender, Awal Mohammed is hopeful his club will win at least a trophy when the current season comes to a close.
The Porcupine Warriors returned to the pitch to honour a competitive game 25 days after the gory accident they had at Nkawkaw. They secured a hard fought 1-1 stalemate with rivals Hearts Of Oak in Kumasi.
According to him, he and his teammates have recovered from the accident incident and that they are ready to fight for at least a trophy.
“What happened to us, no matter what, we must put it behind us because football is our job,” he told Asempa Sports.
“We have no other job apart from football, even if we do, it is the work we started with so we must move on from what happened.
God has his plans and knows what is best for his children.”
“The incident has already happened so we must focus because we have no option than still be out there on the field. That is why you can see that we came and played a competitive match against our rivals Accra Hearts of Oak and since have been able to play that game we are ready for anything.”
The Ghana international is still optimistic Kotoko can clinch a title come the end of the season. Kotoko face Division One campaigners Nea Salamina in the quarter-finals of the MTN FA Cup and for Awal, the team has a title in sight.
“As for Kotoko, we have to take one trophy at least. We have our eyes set on all the trophies but we need to take at least one to Kumasi.
Right now I cannot say whether the league or the FA cup is assured. When you look at where we are in the FA cup, we are in the quarter finals, then we go to the semi-finals.
You might say we will play in the finals but it is not guaranteed yet”.
Awal featured for Ghana in the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa.
