Berekum Chelsea striker Asiwome Fumador admits that the fear of picking up another injury is the reason for his hit-and-miss form this season in the Ghana Premier League.
The striker spent six weeks on the sidelines after sustaining a head injury when he collided with a Techiman City defender in their 1-0 defeat to the league’s new boys on opening day.
Fumador, who scored lots of league goals last campaign, was rushed to the hospital after becoming unconscious and placed under oxygen for 24 hours before recovering.
His strike in the 3-1 loss to Liberty Professionals on Wednesday was his first league goal in the league since October and second goal in all competitions. He concedes that his concerns over another spell on the sidelines are continuing to play on his mind.
“The goal against Liberty will go a long way to boost my confidence. Before my injury, I was 100 per cent fit and eyeing a better start to the season but I’m feeling well now,” Fumador toldGoal.
“After the injury in Techiman, I wanted to get back but it was hard quick. I had a setback and when I played a match, I was always scared because I would get injured again and when I can’t play, I feel sad on the bench,” he added.
Chelsea welcome Dreams FC to the Golden City Park on Sunday and Fumador believes he will score at home for the first time this season.
“My next target is to continue scoring in front of the home fans. It was a joyful moment last season celebrating with them whenever I score and would want to feel it again,” he said.
Chelsea are fifth on the log with points 13 points.
