Former Ghanaian midfielder, Afriyie Acquah, has finalized his move to Nepal’s top-flight club, FC Chitwan, after successfully passing a medical examination.
The 31-year-old has signed a short-term contract with the Nepal Super League team as a free agent.
Afriyie Acquah had been without a club since his departure from Iraqi club Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya in July 2023 when his contract ended.
The former Torino midfielder joined Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya in January of the same year after departing from Al-Batin FC, where he played eight matches in the Saudi Pro League.
FC Chitwan becomes the tenth club in Afriyie Acquah’s professional career, following stints with Palermo, Parma, Hoffenheim, Sampdoria, Torino, Empoli, Yeni Malatyaspor, Al-Batin, and Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya.
Known for his strength, skill, and tenacity, Afriyie Acquah typically plays as a defensive midfielder in front of the defense due to his pace, physicality, stamina, and ability as a ball-winner.
Afriyie Acquah remains a beloved figure among Ghanaians, thanks to his performances with the Black Stars starting from 2012.
He made his debut for Ghana against Chile in a friendly at the PPL Park in Chester, United States of America, on February 20, 2012.
Afriyie Acquah scored his debut goal for Ghana in October 2012 against Malawi at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
He was also part of the Ghana squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil under the guidance of coach James Kwesi Appiah.
Afriyie Acquah now joins fellow Ghanaian Yussif Mubarik, who has also signed for FC Chitwan on a free transfer after his departure from the Ghanaian football powerhouse Asante Kotoko.
