Head coach of Real Tamale United, Tanko Shaibu has warned that other clubs will soon be in trouble when things begin to take shape in the course of the season.
The Premier League returnees have not started their 2021/22 top flight journey on a good note, having claimed just a single point from two opening games.
RTU, who returned to the premier league after eight years of hibernation in the Division One League, played out a 1-1 draw against Accra Great Olympics in week one at the Aliu Mahama Stadium in Tamale.
The Northern club left it late to score an equalizer from the spot through David Abagna after Great Olympics’ Raymond Okoe Grippman’s opener.
RTU suffered a painful 3-2 defeat in their week two fixture against Legon Cities FC at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday, leaving most of the fans in a worrying state.
Head coach, Shaibu Tanko however believes the club will soon be a threat to other teams when the tables turn.
“They are mostly new players into premier division so definitely they have that sort of fear in front of goal.
“When things begin to take [shape], I think clubs will be in trouble in our hands.
“Except that we lost the match [against Great Olympics] mysteriously where and how we lost this match.
“Because to all intent and purposes the team played very well.
“It wasn’t anything strange, it happens in football and if we are in good stead, the team will play better.
“It’s an old team but we only brought in David Abagna and Iddrisu Moro and they are the only two new players or who have experienced premier division.
“Apart from them, Nurudeen the one wearing the two jersey and only the three of them.
“The rest were those who used to play in division one. The new ones we brought are still coping.” Tanko Shaibu said.
Real Tamale United will return to the Aliu Mahama Stadium for match day three against West Africa Football Academy who held Hearts of Oak to a 1-1 draw on Friday, November 12.
