After 15 matches in the suspended Ghana Premier League, the defender has come up against some tough strikers.

However, the 24-year-old has named Aduana Stars marksman Yahaya Mohammed as the toughest striker he has faced in the season.

” All the strikers are tough and difficult to play against. I didn’t find it easy against all of them but stopping Yahaya Mohammed was the difficult of all."

"He is strong in the air and very quick foot. I remember he was so determined to score a goal because Adebayor has already scored. So on that day he was very determined. But I made sure I will not give him any space.”

Yussif Mubarik this season, became the first player to win AshantiGold's Player of the Month award after beating off competition from Frank Boateng, James Akaminko and Mark Agyekum.
