For Sanah to make his debut in the first team, the kid, as he began to openly criticize and bark instructions at the adults around him. From a family who are already staunchly throwing everything out for Hasmal, it was far too obvious the desire to put everything on the line for the club.

The first team players were stunned at the desire Ibrahim Sanah showed. The game was just a casual five side-five side game. Nothing at stake to tussle for and nothing to get too worked up about. They couldn’t believe the kid’s cheek and he really won them over.

Once Ibrahim Sanah Mohammed stepped on to the training pitch, he became hard to ignore. Sanah was one of the Malavands(Hasmal team B) players who earned promotion to the 2016-17 season of the Division One League.

It was too difficult to have his way to the starting team and had to bid his time from the bench, he had 17 games, mostly starting from the bench.

2018 was just not the year for Ibrahim Sanah Mohammed, an injury suffered in February 2018 preparatory game against Karela United forced him off the field and missed the abrupt 2017-18 league, he came back nearly 356 days fresher than before in a 1-0 victory against Rail Stars ahead of the Normalization Committee’s Special Tournament.

The NC Special was perhaps Sanah‘s biggest test and what led it was pure individual brilliance, the central midfielder showed class in all the games played, carving incredible performances to lit up the venues.

There were some outstanding balance of incredible displays and the otherwise. Youngsters such as; goalkeeper Michael Kwofie, debut man Eric Quarshie, left back Daniel Egyin, forwards Obed Asamoah Ackah, Philip Flamini and Emmanuel Ebahoah have gazumped opponents with fine displays led by the promptings of Ibrahim Sanah Mohammed, undoubtedly leading the numbers game of this tournament.

The applauds, well deserved complements keep making way to the doorstep of the 19-year-old, Ibrahim Sanah Mohammed as he kept his form dazzling through midfielders, coupling it with his apt passing accuracy.

His 186cm height and weight of 76KG gives him an advantage to boss out opponents in the middle aerially.

The Malavands midfielder’s innate desire to win and lift the performances of all those around him is another character he has to hold firm to his chest. After 3 season in the first team, Sanah is awarded the 4th captain position at Hasmal.
