Toure claims he's the best striker in Ghana

The Hunters new striker believes he is the best in the country following his display in the pre-season tournament last weekend Bechem United striker Amed 'Simba' Toure claims he is the best striker in Ghana following his incredible performance against former club Asante Kotoko during their 5-4 defeat in the Ghalca G6 third and fourth play-off last Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi. The Burkina Faso international, 28, ended the tournament with three goals, netting a brace against Kotoko but was shown his marching orders after elbowing the Porcupine Warriors’ defender Abeiku Ainooson in the second-half.

''Thank God for my two goals against my former club Asanti Kotoko [in the Ghalca tournament]. Despite the defeat, I proved that I’m the best [striker in the country]," Toure wrote on Facebook. "I thank God and thanks to all my fans. God must direct and controls the family,'' he added. The 2016-17 Ghana Premier League season was initially billed to kick off on December 18 but reports suggest it may be moved to February, after the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, due to outstanding legal issues involving Dreams FC and Tema Youth as well as Techiman City and Berekum Chelsea.
