Ghanaian international Isaac Atanga says he expects to do in his power to help Major League Soccer (MLS) side C Cincinnati FC achieve greatness.
“My expectation with FC Cincinnati is to achieve greatness. I’m going to give everything in my power to help them,” Atanga told the BBC.
“The American lifestyle didn’t play a part in my decision to move to MLS, it’s a very interesting league and I want to also be part.
“I went through the offers I had with my family and management and at that moment, putting everything into consideration, I think the best offer on the table was MLS.
“I don’t want to mention names [of clubs] but I had two offers in Europe, two in North America and one in Asia.”
“I don’t have any regrets moving to MLS but the only regret I had was not forcing my way out after 2-3 seasons in MLS when I had offers in the top five leagues in the world,” Accam explained.
“I don’t think it is a step down going to MLS. I consider MLS to be a development or a stepping stone for young players to move on to bigger leagues in the world.”
An added bonus for Atanga is that Cincinnati FC have a partnership deal with German Bundesliga side 1899 Hoffenheim which could help in any bid he has to play in Europe again.
