Johnson Smith targets top four finish with Karela United
Head Coach of Karela United Football Club, Johnson Smith has targeted a top four finish with the newly promoted Ghana Premier League side.
The former Kumasi Asante Kotoko Coach led his current club to an emphatic 4-0 victory over Ebusua Dwarfs in the second game of the GHALCA G8 tournament.
Following the massive victory over the Crabs, the experienced gaffer indicated the club's ambitions of finishing in the top four.
“Our target for the season is to get to the top four and if even we don’t get there and manage to get a good position, we would like it,” Smith stated.
“In our first match against Hearts my players were a bit shaky but after that they are booming with confidence and I hope we can carry that into the season.”
Karela United had their preseason in Ivory Coast where they played a couple of games with Ivorian top clubs including Asec Mimosa.
The club has signed some experienced players including former Aduana Stars captain Godfred Saka and Isaac Kwain from Dwarfs.
The newcomers will next face Medeama SC in the final group game of the GHALCA G8 on Sunday.
