Ebenezer Assifuah admits Liberty Professionals are under-performing in the First Capital Plus Premier League and wants to score more goals to turn around their season.

The 19-year-old bagged a brace on his return to the Ghanaian top-flight as he helped the Scientific Soccer Leads to thump Sekondi Hasaacas 3-1 in mid-week.

Liberty are just a place above the relegation-zone and are only three points better than Aduana Stars (14th) and make a short trip to Tema to play guest to bottom-placed Inter Allies.

Ashia netted 15 times in the league for Liberty last season: “We’re not doing very well in the league and must improve our performance.”

“I played my first game since I returned from Norway and scored twice on Wednesday. I score a lot of goals last season and I want to repeat that to help the team,” he added on Happy Fm.

Ashia played for Ghana at the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey and joined Norwegian side SK Brann on a six-month contract but failed to make his stay permanent as he could not make as he could not play a league game for the club.
