Our focus is to survive relegation not FA Cup glory – King Faisal deputy coach Godwin Ablordey
King Faisal deputy coach Ablordey prioritizes League survival over FA Cup triumph
The Insha Allah Boys have booked themselves in the semifinal of the 2022-23 MTN FA following triumph over Aduana Stars FC but seems not much interested in the glory the FA Cup brings rather aiming to retain their Premiership ticket since relegation is knocking their door.
Currently, King Faisal FC are 10th on the league table with 32 points after 25 Premier league matches. However, their chances of suffering demotion looks clearer than even winning the Ghana Premier League having fallen short of just 12 points behind leaders Aduana Stars FC and 4 points away from relegation.
On Sunday afternoon, they thump Aduana Stars FC 3-1 on penalties after holding them to a 2-2 draw at the Abrankese Kwame Kyei Sports complex.
With a glorious opportunity hitting King Faisal’s front door, their deputy coach Godwin Ablordey says their aim is not the FA since division one league clubs do participate. But their main target, is to survive the test of time thus, retain their top-flight status.
“I’m not thinking about FA Cup. I’m thinking about the league because we have to stay in the league. FA Cup when you are out you can still play so we are just concentrating on the league so that we make sure we stay in the league.
“So this is our focus now. FA Cup, we are going to the semi-finals but it’s down. We are thinking of the league now,” he told StarTimes.
They will face Dreams FC on Sunday at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.
