Ghanaian youth attacker Joel Akomadi is dreaming of playing against former Golden Boy Award winner Mario Balotelli in the Turkish Super League this season.
Akomadi, 21, plies his trade with Super Lig side Hatayspor and could face Balotelli when his club clashes with Adana Demirspor who signed Balotelli.
Balotelli moved the Turkish Super Lig after leaving Serie B side AC Monza.
Akomadi joined Hatayspor from Aspire Academy of Senegal in the 2018/19 season and made his debut in the top-flight league last season, playing two times in the league.
He hopes to play against the former Italy international next season.
“I have played against renowned footballers like Mezut Ozil, Antonio Valencia, Demba Ba, Samata among others but playing against former Manchester City star Mario Balotelli will boost my playing skills to do more for my club Hatayspor and also will get me closer to don the national team jersey,” he quoted as saying by African Entertainment.
