Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed says he has no plans of moving from Kuban Krasnodar despite the long winter break in the Russian top flight.

Some Ghanaian players have already secured January moves in order to remain fit and competitive with the World Cup drawing closer.

Striker Abdul Majeed Waris has just secured a loan move to French club Valenciennes from Spartak Moscow due to the long winter break in the Russian league.

It was therefore expected that Rabiu – who has just returned from injury – will make a similar move to prove his fitness before the resumption of the league.

But the 24-year-old chooses to remain with Kuban where he wants to prove himself following his summer arrival from Evian TG.

“No, there is no loan move for me,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“I will wait to train with them [Kuban] since I didn’t do pre-season training with them.

“That will put me in a better position to do better when the league resumes.”

Rabiu made four starts for the Russian club before suffering an injury which kept him out of Ghana’s vital 2014 World Cup playoffs against Egypt.

    Masa any loan move would be better oo regardless, remember u just return from injury and need games week in week out to come back to ur fitness. World Cup is 5months away and u don’t expect to sit home for 3month n do magic in 2months, u need games my bro.

    This guy truely reminds me of France ‘s Patrick Viera. I personally, think the best option for you to keep in shape especially coming from a long term lay off due to injury was to consider a six months loan elsewhere if that was possible. I bet you gonna need that or hire a personal coach for the inactive 3 months period of the Russian league to keep you in shape. The competition in the BS team for a place in the next five months will not be easy. I really do not want you to miss the train but it depends on the decision henceforth. I guess the same goes to Wakaso. His form has also been seriously dipping since he also joined rubin from espanyol.

      Hmm..Like you said you live in Canada?Knows one guy who plays in Canada for Vancouver?..Thinking deeply as you want an urgent response from Boro..I think its either you are an agent of Koffie or just himself looking for an attention.Well,I will advise that you play for a more competitive league in Europe to be recognized..Thats all

    The best player in Canada will not even make a cut in Kotoko. I don’t mean to be rude but if best player in European countries like Norway, Denmark are not making the cut, pls, don’t worry about Canada.

    U guys are just ignorant the vancouver whitecaps play in the MLS. If someone must play in Europe before he can play for black stars then drop Asamoah Gyan, kwasiafoc if u don’t have anything to say or comment about what he said why don’t u ignore n move on.

    I am sure you are referring to Gershon Koffie? He plays for vancouver white caps. He is a midfielder. I have actually not watched him play but have read about him. I learnt he was in good shape for white caps in 2013. He started 28 matches scored 3 with 2 assists. He was actually part of the 2010 local under20 team before he was scouted to Canada. He was one of the nine foreign players called to beef up the Africa under 20 team but i am sure he could not make the cut. Ghana is aware of his talents and could be for the future. Just have to keep it up for now and try and make it to europe, you know. Afterall, he is just 21 years.
