Ghana international Kingsley Sarfo has revealed the ordeal he had to go through while playing his football in Sweden.
The 26-year-old admitted that there were plans to integrate him into the Sweden national team after years of impressive performances in the country having moved from Ghana.
Speaking to exclusively to GHOne TV Sports on how he ended up at Malmo FF, the midfielder said: “It was because of the Sweden national team. They wanted me to naturalise for them and play with them while joining to the world cup in 2018. Hence they suggested I stay one more year in the country so they could fix my papers and passport and make me available for the team.”
“It was a plan for me to join the national team, that is why I chose Malmo.”
Sarfo also revealed that he had a lot of offers coming his way during the summer he joined Malmo, adding that the Swedish side’s offer was the least he received in terms of the ability of the clubs but he had to make the move because of the idea of playing for the national team.
“Manchester City, Monaco, Sevilla, RB Leipzig, and a whole lot of teams from Russia, England, Spain, Italy all made offers to me. Malmo was the least offer I received,” he continued.
The midfielder now plies his trade in Cyprus, where he has been named the captain for Olympiacos Nicosia.
