Ghana international player Afriyie Acquah wants to play for Asante Kotoko in the future but only on condition that B.A United do not happen to be in the Ghanaian top-flight at the time of making his decision to join the Ghana Premier League.
The Yeni Malatyaspor midfielder grew up in Sunyani supporting his boyhood club B.A United but the legendary B. A football club is in the second-tier league since the 2016 season.
The former Palermo midfielder is also a big fan of Asante Kotoko and will prioritize taking his professional football career to the Porcupine Warriors some day on one particular condition.
“I am a B. A United fan through and through. My family is a B.A United one but you know they are currently not in the elite league. In future when I decide to come back to Ghana to play in the top-flight I will consider B.A United first if and only they are in the elite league.
If United is in the league then straight away I go there. Otherwise the club that I dream to play for in Ghana is Asante Kotoko. Kotoko is that club that I want to play for one day because it is the team of my heart. This is my dream also and so I congratulate Gyan and wish him all the best at his new club” Afriyie Acquah told SPORTSWorldGhana.com in an exclusive interview from his base in Turkey.
“When I heard that Gyan has joined the Ghana Premier League again I was so happy for him because I think this is going to help make the league more interesting. When you look at the career of Gyan he has done amazing things and he comes to the league with a huge personality. This is my dream also. One day when I feel that I have had enough of European football I want to come to the Ghana premier league and have a feel of it before I call time on my football career. As you know I never played in the Ghana premier league or even the Division one and so it is my dream to also do what Gyan has done now. ” Acquah told SPORTSWorldGhana.com exclusively.
