Inter Allies marksman Victorien Adebayor has declared his readiness to battle for the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League Golden boot.

The Capelli Boys forward has earned rave reviews this season after managing 10 goals and 4 assists from 10 appearances.

The red-hot forward was twice on target as Inter Allies stunned Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City Park in the Ghana Premier League matchweek 10 fixture on Saturday.

Speaking to the media after the game, the Nigerien international said "I told my teammates I want to score two goals against Berekum Chelsea to make a statement. And thank God I was able to score two goals. I’m ready to fight for the golden boot.

On his opening game against the Blues, he claimed, "I saw from the beginning the keeper wasn’t good. He was panicking in the goalposts. So I knew if add a bit technique I could score from that angle."
