Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan targets GPL and FA Cup glory this season

Kumasi Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan has stated his intention of winning the double after the disappointment of their African Campaign.

The record Ghana Premier League Champions began the season with a 1-1 draw in Sogakope against WAFA, with the heroics of the 23 year old coming to the fore for the Porcupine Warriors.

Aminu Mohammed scored a brilliant free-kick for the home side in the fourth minute before Yakubu Mohammed pulled parity in the 19th minute for Kotoko.

The Reds have struggled in previous attempts at the Red Bull Arena and were close to suffering the same fate, but it took a fingertip save in the final minute from Annan to rescue a point for the FA Cup winners.

Annan, who produced another spectacular performance, said he always wants to give a 200% performance whenever he is in the Red Jersey.

“I always try to give my best, my 200% best anytime I get the opportunity to wear the Kotoko shirt even if it is two minutes,” the Black Stars B goalkeeper said after the game on Sunday.

“I always try to help the team and try to keep the team in the lead and hopefully we ca always win,”

“I really love my job, I love the talent God has given me and each and everyday I work hard and I know hard work pays.’

Felix Annan formerly played for WAFA on loan before rejoining the Reds and has been one of the top performers of the club.

The WAFU Cup of Nations winner was exceptional in the club’s agonizing defeat to CARA Brazzaville in the CAF Confederations Cup, saving four penalties in a two legged affair.

But, he has put behind the disappointment in Africa indicating the target for the season is to win the double with the Porcupine Warriors.

“The Confederations Cup was a high target for us but unfortunately we could not progress to the next stage,”

“Now, the League and the FA Cup are our prime target and we really want to make amends after disappointing the Kotoko family and the whole Ghana.”
