‘I’m returning to the GPL with a new motivation’ – Amed Touré

Former Asante Kotoko striker Amed Touré has revealed he will play the second round of the ongoing 2015/16 Ghana Premier League.

The goal poacher said he is in talks with two unnamed Ghanaian clubs and will pen down his signature for whichever one that sails through.

Touré, who was signed back into the club once again for a third consecutive time on September last year, stated there were no qualms between him and the management for his contract abrogation.

“There’s no problem between myself and Kotoko. My exit was a decision taken collectively and I respect that. We sat down and amicably cancelled the contract,” he told Kumasi-based Boss FM.

“I have received my papers, documents, card and release letter. I didn’t leave on a ‘war note’ but it was a decision by both sides. I respected that decision and left quietly,” Touré re-echoed.

“I was surprised hearing a lot of stories that Duncan says I’m not in his plans for the following season. I even asked some management members if what I was hearing is true.”

The Burkinabe international last season was the leading goal scorer for the Porcupine Warriors with 11 goals.

After parting ways the Kotoko in January this year, Touré said he will continue with his excellent form and promises to do much better this time when he returns to another club in the GPL.

“I’m in France now but will be in Ghana next week Saturday or Sunday. I’m currently in talks with two clubs in Ghana, so I will meet the people in charge and discuss terms with them. I won’t reveal whether the team is in Kumasi or Accra,” Touré explained.

“By God’s grace, I will play the second round of the Ghana Premier League. If everything is okay, why not.

“I have my personal physical trainer who is working to keep me in shape. I’m currently training with a second division team. Before I went to France, I was training with Asec [Mimosas].

“Anytime I come to the Ghana league, I come with a new motivation. I come with a new Amed Toure, I come with new football. I have been here three times. In all, I do my job, score and make the people happy.”
