Amidaus midfielder Yayaha Mohammed admits he will have mixed emotions when he returns to Kotoko to face his former club in the opening day of the Premier League.
The 24-year-old joined the newly promoted side on a season-long loan after a difficult spell at the Ghanaian champions.
The intelligent enforcer had a mixed start to his career at Kotoko where recurrent injuries kept him on the sidelines for the better part of last season.
But the former Tema Youth man knows there be no room for sentimentality when he heads back to the Kumasi Sports stadium on October 7.
“You know that was where I was until I joined Amidaus. Whether we play first or second match I don’t care. We are going there to win, get the three points and come back,” Mohammed told Kumasi-based Fox FM
“Nobody goes into a match with the mentality of losing. At the end of the day it would be either win, lose or draw.
“I had a difficult season at Kotoko due to injuries and so it scattered my ambitions of making a name at the club.
“I wanted to set a mark at the club before I leave until the problems arose.
“I am determined to take Amidaus to a different level so that I can leave an imprint here.
“I miss my former teammates and disappointed I’m not part of the Kotoko team.”
The exciting enforcer was at his usual best for Amidaus when they lost 3-0 to Hearts in a pre-season friendly game on Wednesday.
