Ghana has earned a global reputation of producing top-class defenders in the past, with the legendary Samuel Osei Kuffour leading the pack, keenly followed by Edward Agyemang Duah, Issah Ahmed and Salisu Mohammed who has made a big-money move to Southampton in English Premiership due to his resoluteness at the heart of defence of La Liga side, Valladolid.
At Only 16, Bekoe Ransford might just be the next big gem with impregnable defensive qualities embodied in his bony frame.
Bekoe Ransford is a product of Storm Soccer Academy at Bepong in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
His ability to play as a typical advanced central defence and defensive midfield makes him a true utility player on the pitch for any coach.
Usually, compared to Spanish legend, Sergio Ramos Garcia, the Ghanaian teen sensation has already drawn the attention of the country’s bigwigs who are jostling for his signature.
Ransford’s peers and coaches have always waxed lyrical about his unique nature-with or without the ball.
The youngster’s positioning ability, blocks, clearance and confidence in the air always stand him out.
He has been tipped by former Ghanaian International, Edward Agyemang Duah to monopolize in Ghana football.
