Medeama Sporting Club new acquisition Zakaria Mumuni has revealed he turned down a move to Kumasi Asante Kotoko because he believes the timing wasn’t right.
The player disclosed this to Oyerepa FM in an interview after sealing a move to the Mauve and Yellow team.
“It’s true a lot of clubs were chasing me but Medeama looked more purposeful so signed for them but for Kotoko I don’t think the time was right when it is I will play for them.”
“There were some complications especially the ban they are serving, I couldn’t have waited till it’s lifted because that’s what I do for a living,” he said.
The youngster revealed his ambition for the two-times FA Cup winners after inking two-year deal for the Yellow and Mauves two days ago.
“Medeama wants to qualify for Africa and it’s my target to help them qualify.”
“This is an incredible opportunity to join a club with such an amazing project,” he said after sealing the deal on Monday.
“I would like to thank everyone at Medeama for the massive show of love and support in this short period.
“We hope work hard as a collective unit and make our fans happy. This is another challenge for me and I look forward to another giant step in my career.
“We want to perform at the highest level and get the desired results.
“Having spoken to the coach about the vision and direction of the team, its hugely exciting and I can’t wait to be part of it.”
He’s expected to bring more bite to the attacking department of Medeama since the arrival of Ahmed Toure and Prince Opoku Agyemang will forster the course.
Zakaria Mumuni was a force to reckon in the Ghana Premier League during his spell with WAFA and Aduana Stars.
He led the Dormaa giants to their second league tittle glory and qualified them to their first ever appearance in the group stages of the CAF Confederations Cup.
