Latif Blessing abandons goal king dream, focused on survival

Liberty Professionals star Latif Atta Blessing has chosen survival over being top scorer of the Ghana Premier League at the end of the season.

The Scientific Soccer Lads slipped into the relegation zone after Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Inter Allies.

Liberty needs a win in their final match against Bechem United to remain safe- that is if other results go their way.

"My focus now is to help my team avoid relegation rather than winning the top scorer award," he told

"I don't think I will be glad if I become the top scorer and my team exits the league."

Blessing is second on the scorer's chart with 13 goals; one behind leader Yahaya Mohammed.
