2021/22 Yaw Annor, the top scorer in the Ghana Premier League (GPL), claimed that he never thought he would be the league’s top scorer after the season began because he got off to a sluggish start and had only scored one by November 2021.
When asked how he anticipated the season will play out at the beginning of the season on Happy Sports with Ohene Bampoe-Brenya, Annor stated the following.
“I always set a goal of 15 goals for myself once the season started, but leading the goal tally was completely unexpected. I didn’t get off to a great start, and I felt like my level wasn’t high enough by the end of last year, so I decided to put in the extra hours to make a difference,” he explained.
The winger had a remarkable recovery in 2022, scoring 22 goals in the GPL’s 2021/22 season, in addition to the one goal he had scored the year before.
“It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get that far, I didn’t get this far by just fantasizing about it. I worked hard and dedicated myself to achieving a high level of performance. Doping never occurred to me. What happened in the league was the result of my efforts.” he added.
Yaw did not respond positively to the question of whether he would leave the league or travel abroad for a different challenge, opting to wait and see what transpired.
“The GPL does not have many grand sponsors, and when players go to South Africa and the like, it is mostly not their fault because those countries offer more lucrative and conducive contracts,” he concluded.
