American born Ghanaian Basketball Player Alhaji Mohammed has spoken about his status in the Basketball Africa (BAL) in an interview with Basketballghana.com following the announcement of the start dates for the competition.
The maiden edition of the anticipated continental competition is due to run from December to December 18 with all games to be played in Kigali, Rwanda.
12 teams have qualified to compete in the tournament that is backed by the NBA and FIBA Africa; the competition was due to commence in March but the onset of the Corona Virus prevented this from happening.
Veteran Guard Mohammed signed with Tunisian giant US Monastir earlier this year prior to the competition’s suspension.
Speaking for the first time since the announcement, Mohammed said, “My plan is to go back and play. They have a new Coach so we will see. I still have a signed contract. So I’m just waiting to see what will happen with everything going on in the world.”
Mohammed was born to a Ghanaian father and was one of the Coaches at the SEED Academy; Ghana Camp held in Accra last year.
