Injuries might have troubled his career in football, however former Ghana youth star Opoku Agyemang is relishing a return to action after nine years battling series of setbacks.
The winger, one-time Ghana prodigy has endured a frustrating career since 2011 when he tore a knee ligament, an injury which has kept him out for almost a decade.
Opoku Agyemang shot into the limelight after winning the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup with the Black Satellites in Egypt.
He however featured and played a key role for Ghana at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola where the Black Stars reached the finals before losing the ultimate to Egypt, but eventually missed out from the squad to the World Cup due to injury.
Now 29, the attacker has big dreams of making a strong come-back to continue an unfinished business.
“Despite being out these past nine years, I have always felt confident that I will recover fully and play again. I’m still on rehabilitation full of hope that I return soon,” he said on Starr FM’s Extra time.
The former Ghana U17 star has played for Sfaxien, Al-Sadd, Al-Ahly Doha and Levski Sofia.
