Moldova: Ex-Asante Kotoko midfielder Mudasiru Salifu makes debut for FC Sheriff

Midfielder Mudasiru Salifu made his debut for FC Sheriff against Zimbru in Moldova’s top flight on Saturday.

The former Asante Kotoko star was handed a starting role and played the entire throttle at the Zimbru Stadium.

The tie which ended 1-1 saw the 25-year-old put up a splendid performance. Salifu came close to scoring before Sheriff took the lead in the 63rd minute through defender Keston Julien scored.

However, five minutes later Eugen Sidorenco levelled for the home team.

Mudasiru joined Sheriff on loan from Asante Kotoko recently and has already earned the trust of manager Stjepan Tomas to start the club’s first competitive match of the season.

He is expected to get more playing time in the coming games after impressing on his debut.

He played an extraordinary role, helping Kotoko to win the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League.

He scored two goals in 28 appearances for the Porcupine Warriors in the title success last season.

He is one of the highly-rated midfielders in Ghana and is tipped to have a successful time in Moldova.
