Asante Kotoko

I was determined to prove critics wrong – Fabio Gama.



Gama was completely written off even before he made his debut for the Porcupine Warriors after signing a two-year deal in October last year.

The Brazilian had been without a club for seven months and also previous players from the South American country flopped in Ghana.

But Gama excelled, surpassing 10 goal contributions last season despite having to adapt to a completely new environment.

“Since Kotoko first announced my name, I started to hear this. But as I said before, I tried to do my best to prove that they are wrong about me and in the final I was right. The feelings, in the beginning, is bad because they don’t know and they start to speak bad things about you. So you start to think, “How can they do this?”

“But when I heard it the first time, I start to give all my heart for Kotoko and prove that they are wrong because I came and I can improve myself, and this was very important for me so all the haters they give me more strength to make my way easy. At the same time this makes me strong,” the Kotoko midfielder said.

Gama spent two years in Sweden before becoming a free agent and securing a move to Kotoko. He indicated that his time in Sweden served as a learning curve, and supported his adaptation in Ghana.

“I was in Sweden for two years so it was a good time. I learnt a lot in Sweden, like football tactics, how to understand the game. These were very important for me and when I came to Ghana it was easier to adapt to Ghana football. I played as a midfielder [in Sweden] like I did with Mariano [Barreto] here – I played as a midfielder on the right side, the same position. Sometimes as a number 10 as well,” Gama said.

Gama scored five goals and assisted six for Kotoko.
