Youssouf here to 'win everything'

09 January 2019 | Sports

African Stars' new signing Ibroihim Youssouf has promised to work hard and help his new club “win everything”.

Youssouf joined 'The Reds' from Comoros club Volcano de Moroni last week, after impressive performances when the two teams clashed in a two-leg CAF Champions League preliminary late last year.

“I am here to win everything with African Stars and I do believe I will help this team, with God's grace.

“I decided to join African Stars because as a footballer one will have to travel and explore other countries.

“The language barrier will not be a difficult thing for me because football is a universal game,” Youssouf said.

He scored 19 goals last season, while providing 35 assists for his former club.

Stars revealed that Youssouf could be in doubt for this weekend's CAF Confederations Cup game against Morocco's Raja Casablanca, depending on the finalisation of his paperwork.

Stars will be able to confirm his participation in the crucial first-leg match by today.

The match will be played on Saturday at the Sam Nujoma Stadium, with the kickoff scheduled for 16:00.

Tickets are on sale at Webtickets outlets situated inside Pick n Pay shops countrywide. They cost N$50 for general entrance and N$500 for VIP seats.

African Stars assistant coach Andrew Tjahikika said his team is ready for the big clash, given that they have been preparing since last Monday.

Stars chairman Patrick Kauta said the team is using their African experience to facilitate a professional setup, which has started with the appointment of a professional technical team.

The team announced they also intend to pave the way for more fresh players to join their ranks.
