Karela United FC were one of the clubs tipped to get closer to the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League title and probably win it at the end of the season.
The depth of the squad coupled with the technical guidance of then coach, Evans Adotey were enough basis for pundits to rate high the Anyinase based club for their maiden title.
They had a good run in the first round, collecting 11 points from their opening five matches of the season.
The second round however turned sour with some questionable defeats in their basket, leading to the departure of coach Evans Adotey.
A disappointed midfielder of the club, Umar Bashiru admits they could have done better but inconsistence second performance dragged them out of the top four.
“I’m very very disappointed that we were not able to finish in the top four because in the first round we had a very great results, performed and played really well and we were on top of the league in the first round.
“We came in the second round and things changed and it was difficult to explain what happened but we could have done better.
“I think we should have finished in the top four but in the end, we all know that Karela is a young team so to finish in 8th I think it’s not bad.
“But we have to also improve.” Umar Bashiru told Africa-foot.com.
Bashiru was key for Karela’s in their campaign last season after joining them on a free.
Umar Bashiru is a product of West Africa Football Academy and once had an unsuccessful spell at Asante Kotoko.
Karela United manage just an 8th place on the league log with 46 points from 34 games.
