Young midfielder of Ghanaian origin, Yunus Musah has revealed his decision to snub Ghana’s Black Stars in favour of playing for the United States of America men’s national team.
According to the Valencia CF versatile player, he loves America and sees it as a pride to don the USA colours and believes they have a young and ambitious youngster who wants to do many things on the World stage.
“It is a pride to go to the United States team. It is a group that I love to be with. It is a team that wants to do many things and we are sure to grow together,” Musah told Valencia’s media in an interview.
The youngster was a revelation last season for Valencia in the Spanish La Liga before he was unfortunately hit by injuries which hampered his progress in the league last season.
He also spoke about why he has decided to opt for a new jersey number at the club for the 2021-22 season in Spain.
“There were 4 and 19. In England it is usual to wear 4, 8 or 10 if you play in the middle and since I already had 4 in England once, I thought about choosing 4,” he said.
“I am a midfielder. Last year I played on the wing. You have to play wherever and it is good to improve in many places and improve in many positions.
“With the lower categories of England I played in the middle and in the United States team, too. I really like to play in the middle, but if you have to play in another position, nothing happens”, he concluded.
