“We did the needful against Kotoko”- King Faisal head coach Amadu Nurudeen

King Faisal head coach, Amadu Nurudeen, says that his team did the things that were the most important and that was how the got themselves a 3-2 win over city rivals, Asante Kotoko, at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday in Week 6 of the Ghana Premier League.

Zubairu Ibrahim’s goals in the 4th, 17th and 4th minutes powered Faisal to the win and joint top spot on 13 points.

After the match, King Faisal’s head coach, Amadu Nurudeen, revealed to StarTimes that the victory was built on efficiency and the team’s ability to take the most important actions and decisions against their opponents.

“We wanted to give them (Kotoko) a good fight today and we started the match as underdogs but we did the needful even though they played better.

Being needful means that we stayed back, defended well and played on the counter. We made use of the few chances that we got and that was the plan heading into the match.

The victory means that we are on course but it is too early to say anything but we believe that if continue working hard, we can get a respectable position on the league table at the end of the season.”

The victory was King Faisal’s 4th of the campaign after the previous wins against AshGold (1-0), Aduana Stars (3-) and WAFA (1-0). They also recorded a draw with Medeama and a loss to Berekum Chelsea.
