Ghanaian striker Kwame Kizito has revealed he had discussions with his Ghanaian compatriot Nasiru Mohammed before agreeing to join Swedish top-flight side BK Hacken.
The 22-year-old touched down in Sweden on Friday after inking a three-year-contract with the Yellow and Blacks.
Kizito, a former player of Hearts of Oak, is not part of the Hacken squad that has travelled out of Sweden for pre-season because the club wants him to familiarise himself with the terrain in the Scandinavian country.
The lanky forward, who played a key role for Ghana during the 2017 WAFU tournament, has revealed he spoke at length with his Ghanaian compatriot Nasiru Mohammed before putting pen to paper.
“It’s cold here, but I’m very happy to finally be in place. I have watched some on Youtube, and I come to a team that plays a nice football. I have also had contact with Nasiru Mohammed, who just talked a lot about the club,” he revealed.
His last spell was with Libya’s Al-Ittihad Tripoli, where he scored 7 goals in 12 matches.
Sonny Karlsson, a Hacken official revealed: “We have been interested in Kizito for a long time and made an attempt to get him before the 2018 season, but we did not succeed then. Of course we would have liked to have taken him to the training camp, but now he gets a little more than a week to get to know Hisingen and GPA and train in the winter cold, so he is ready to go into training with the team when they return.”
Kizito was recently linked with Hearts of Oak when he returned to Ghana but the move has shattered any possible dream of the Phobians recapturing their former front-man.
