The pacy midfielder who is not fond of complaining about officiating has described as 'very frustrating' the match official's decision in their game on Sunday at Techiman.
Speaking in an interview with Edmund Osafo Addo on SilverFM's SportsCenter , the in-form midfielder said,
''We are humans and I accept the fact that we are prone to make mistakes.....and as a player I understand that match officials cannot be perfect or 100 per cent through out a game''
''But on several occasion during last Sunday's game against Wonders,decisions were ignored especially when balls went out of play right in front of linesman and needed to be given....bad off side decisions in a situation where our own goalkeeper released a ball to a player in the offensive''
He alleged that some of the fans from Techiman tried to prevent him from entering the field of play and the dressing room over his wrist band.
''I have never used juju in my football career....I always pray to my maker and call my mother before each game''
''I only had a white handkerchief on my wrist on Sunday as the other players and my hand was paining me that is why I even used it''
Awako believes his current form has contributed to his call up to the senior national team, the Black Stars.
The 30 year old has been ever present for the ‘Dade Boys’ this season, contributing to the goals campaign and has expressed his excitement following his inclusion in the 32 home-based players list for Black Stars.
'' I am excited because this is every player's dream to be called to the national team .... there are good midfielders like myself but getting a call up is essential''
He was part of the Black Satellites side in 2009 FIFA U-20 world cup triumph in Egypt.
Ghana became the first African team to win the FIFA U-20 world cup when they beat Brazil 4-3 on penalties after the game ended 0-0 after extra time.
