Tamale Utrecht Football Academy coach, Baba Nuhu Mallam has sent a message of congratulations to Real Tamale United.
The Northern Blues were crowned Zone 1 champions on Sunday afternoon after Berekum Arsenal drew 0-0 With Bofoakwa Tano at the Golden City Park, meaning after RTU beat Unity FC 2-0 at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium, it became mathematically impossible for any side to catch RTU at the top of the table, which ensured the club their promotion back to the top flight of Ghana Football after 8 years.
Celebrations around Tamale for all RTU fans have now begun, with some supporters gathering outside the Aliu Mahama Stadium to show this all-conquering side their appreciation, while the White and Green side of Sunyani looks on in envy.
“It is a great achievement, congratulations,” said Mallam. Really well done after a very difficult year for the whole world, not just in football, and what they achieved so far this season is exceptional”
“” We at Tamale Utrecht congratulate Coach Shaibu Ibrahim Tanko and his boys for bringing smiles to the faces of the football fratanity in the North, we hope this will inspire the young ones coming in the near future”” the Black Maidens head coach said.
RTU ended the season on 65 points levelled with Bofoakwa but qualified on the better goal difference and better head to head records.
