Aduana players must win to protect their integrity - Yusif Abubakar

The Head coach of Aduana Stars, Yussif Abubakar, is confident his players will deliver on Wednesday against Libyan side Al-Tahady in the 2nd leg of the CAF Champions League game to be played at the Nana Agyeman Badu I Park.

According to the coach the players have to win this game at all cost to protect their integrity and respect.

“The possibility to reach the money zone, is enough motivation for the players and they have their integrity to protect as well,” he told the media at the pre-match conference.

“Before the first match in Egypt their coach had confessed they didn’t know the playing style of Aduana and we also didnt know them very well.

“So its not surprising they wanted to come to Dormaa ahead of time to prepare a well for us. They had studied us and we are also studying them.

“I know they are good in counter attacks and we also did same with 50-50 balls,” he added.

Abubakar also mentioned that motivation is high in camp and they are aware Ghanaians are expecting them to deliver.

He appealed to supporters to remain resolute and avoid hooting at the coaches and players as that could disrupt their focus.
