King Faisal defender, Atta Kusi has been caught up in nostalgic feelings as they prepare to face his former club, Asante Kotoko.
The “Insha Allah” Boys are guests of league leaders, Asante Kotoko in a local derby at the Baba Yara Stadium in week six on Sunday.
Both sides are meeting at the Baba Yara Stadium for the first time in almost two years due to renovation works by the Ghana government which saw them choose different home venues.
Kotoko opted and played briefly at the Accra Sports Stadium before shifting base to the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium while King Faisal chose to honour homes games at the Ohene Ameyaw Park in Techiman.
Both clubs have now returned to their home ground and yet to record any defeat in the five week old 2021/22 league season.
Kotoko have beaten Bechem United and Eleven Wonders by 2-0 margin respectively and King Faisal recording 1-0 and 2-0 wins over WAFA and AshantiGold and a goalless draw to Medeama.
Kusi, who has been part of King Faisal’s steady rise this season, says, he cannot wait to face his former side for the first time at the Baba Yara Stadium since joining King Faisal.
“I’m really happy playing against Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium.
“Ever since I came to King Faisal, I have not played against them at the Baba Yara Stadium.
“This is our first time of clashing at the Kumasi Baba Yara Stadium.
“So I’m extremely happy to play against my former club at the Baba Yara Stadium.” Atta Kusi told Africa-foot.com.
Atta Kusi has played all five games with one start in King Faisal’s 10 points haul – three behind Asante Kotoko who are top of the table.
Attah Kusi, 29 , has previously played for relegated Liberty Professionals before joining Asante Kotoko on a free transfer. He had a brief spell with AshantiGold before signing for King Faisal as a free agent.
