Ghana’s midfield dynamo, Isaac Twum has revealed that he will be very disappointed if he’s unable to become an integral part of the Black Stars and leads them to a big trophy before he retires as a footballer.
The IK Start joined the Norwegian side in 2017, is without a permanent place at Black Stars, although he made his debut under Kwasi Appiah back in 2017.
The former Inter Allies captain, captained the Black Stars B (Ghana’s B team) and led them to lift the WAFU tournament in 2017 which was hosted in Ghana, and was also named the tournament’s best player.
According to the diminutive playmaker in an interview with Bryt FM said: His main focus for the national team is now to win an important trophy with the Black Stars.
He further added that: “Not every player will get the chance to play in the prestigious UEFA Champions League and Europa League, but not being able to Don the National Colours of your country with the Black Stars will be a failure.”
Twum also stated that, though he has played for the junior national teams and captained Black Stars B, but his ultimate aim is to represent the Stars in a major tournament.
“I know I have represented both U17, U20 and other national teams, but if I do not become a permanent member of Black Stars I will regret it big time because I am an ambitious footballer who always wants to achieve something better with my career”.
“People may think I have made my debut for the national team, but playing in friendly matches is not an achievement, because we have players who have won trophies for the national team. My goal is to bridge the gap and break into the team and lead them as I did with Black Stars B.”
He concluded. “To be honest, I will regret if I fail to lead Black Stars to deliver magic in the same way as with Black Stars B did in the WAFU competition in 2017.
The 21-year-old Ghanaian midfielder has made 10 appearances for Start in the Eliteserien this season with one goal and assist to his name.
