The strong defender who was born in Techiman endured a difficult childhood which ultimately led him to become the bread-winner of the family through a bus conductor.
During an interview with Julliet Barwuah’s GPLXpress the player said “it was during JSS time I was a footballer my brother got hurt and I was the only one to fight to ensure the family got daily bread so that made me stop school to take the carrier as bus conductor to make a living for myself and take care of the family as well”.
The Stalwart defender worked for over two years to ensure he had put his family on a good grounds before opting out to pursue his dream as a professional footballer “I was a mate for about two years before I came back to take my boots to start my football carrier again, I was able to cater for my sibling to complete school which was JSS and SHS in a way that was going to help them to also achieve their dreams”
The ex-eleven Wonders player took a bold decision to quit football totally to play a division one side even though he knew the division one team will not pay him any salary as compared to being a trotro mate.
“When I stopped to play football, it was difficult because first division they don’t pay but because it was God given talent I decided to purse and I knew it will pay off” the player further stated.
The hard decision ultimately paid off as Kwadwo Amoako managed to reach the top echelon of Ghana football when he received a call-up to the senior national team by Akwasi Appiah.
Amoako played 27 minutes when Kumasi Asante Kotoko defeated the Obuasi based side 1-0 last weekend at the Len Clay Sports Stadium .
