“I am an attacking midfielder at Asokwa Deportivo but with my qualities like shooting,box to box efficiency,ball winning prowess and a good passing technique, my favourite position is number 8,am very content with that position”.

“In my first season with Asokwa Deportivo at the age 17 I was called to the national U-20 team in January 2019 due to my outstanding performance in the truncated Division One League and later had another call up to the national U-23 team when I was scouted by the National team Coaches in the NC tournament”.

“I was part of Coach Ibrahim Tanko’s team for our last qualifier against Algeria for the 2019 AFCON U-23 tournament in Egypt but two days before the match,the foreign based players came and most of us[local based players] were sidelined for the last match and I felt worried missing such an opportunity”.

“Asokwa Deportivo brought me to the limelight as I had those two national team call ups on merit because am currently one of the best players in the team”.

“In one of our friendly match against Ashanti Gold SC,I had a good game and spent the whole duration of the game without giving a faulty pass,coach Kamarat even awarded me after the game”.

“During my school days,I was very clever and I spent most of my education career with numerous scholarships,thus both JHS and SHS”.

“In 2015,my boyhood club Platini Fc collapsed,I was stranded and didn’t know what to do again.My Father didn’t want me to play football again and wanted me to focus on my education making all sort of demoralizing remarks to swerve my attention from playing football and focus on my education but I was very determined so that propelled me to join division two side Adom Fc and the club helped shaped my career alot.My Dad was not interested to invest in my football career,he was not buying football kits for me and sometimes,money for food was even difficult,in fact this nearly killed my spirit to play football but I thank God for how far he has brought me now”.

“My role model is Marco Verrati of PSG and former Hearts of Oak midfielder, Obed Asamoah”.

“I want to become one of the greatest African players in football history, win Afcon for Ghana and play in one of the top teams in Europe”.
