Head coach of Ghana Premier League outfit Dreams FC, Karim Zito has named a star-studded all time XI for the Dawu-based side as they mark their eleventh anniversary since their establishment.
On 14 July 2009, a football conglomerate of Mohammed Jiji Alifoe, Kurt Okraku, and Prince Abdul Hamid formed a second division side bearing the name Dreams FC.
The journey to what has become a model club in Ghana today started from the Botwa community park.
The team has since produced eminent alumni such as Abdul Baba Rahman, Leonard Owusu, Emmanuel Lomortey, John Antwi, Benjamin Tetteh, Samuel Alabi among a host of others.
“After holding a historic decade celebration last year the club is pleased to announce to its fans that a journey to another decade has started today. We express great gratitude to fans, sponsors, and all stakeholders for providing us with the unprecedented support and always believing in our dream”- club Administration manager Ameenu Shardow said.
The club will mark the celebration with a #DFC11 campaign on social media and climaxes with a short ceremony at the club’s secretariat.
Coach Zito, who was quizzed by Kumasi-based radio station Ashh FM deployed a 4-1-4-1 formation with former Hearts shot-stopper Philemon MacCarthy in post with Chelsea left back Baba Rahman and Philemon Baffour operating on the flanks whiles Elly Keke and Abdullai Maswud partner at the heart of defense.
