Alfred Zagalo Sankoh targeting play-offs with Balıkesirspor

“However, at the moment am happy because we looking to win our next two vital games and enter the play-off for promotion.

“It’s important for us to win our two remaining games.

“I believed in hard work and that is exactly what I’m doing working hard as ever for a better future, Sankoh told
