“I am very much excited to play in one of the best leagues in Africa. I was very happy to hear that the Ghana U-20 team won the Africa U-20 and I’m very much excited to play football with these talented players and challenge myself.
“I really can’t wait to expose myself in front of all of you. I hope to pick up more Fante; for now I can speak ‘nkakra nkrakra’ (very little) but I will try to pick up. Medaase papaapa (thank you very much)”, he concluded.
