Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, a midfielder for Kotoko, is reportedly joining Recreativo Huelvo of Spain. It is predicted that the former Berekum Arsenal star and national team player will leave at the conclusion of the current European league season. Kotoko bought Agyemang Badu before the start of the season, although he has only appeared in two games so far. That occurred in a game versus Tema Youth and Accra Hearts of Oak.
He was hurt on the way back from the Cote d’Ivoire Championship of Africa competition, therefore he hasn’t played for Kotoko since.
He’ll be going on the European training trip with the Spanish first division team. Spanish club Real Betis reportedly signed forward Agyemang Badu from the African Youth Championship in Rwanda.
Despite interest from a number of other European clubs, Kotoko midfielder Agyemang Badu ultimately decided to sign with Real Madrid.
He will become only the fourth Ghanaian to ever play in Spain’s top flight. National youth players Sadick Adams, Daniel Opare, and Rabiu Mohammed are also candidates to join the Satellites, the team that swept across Africa in January.
However, the three players living in Spain were unable to attend the Rwanda competition due to a variety of factors. Sadick was not allowed to play when his Athletico Madrid teammates Opare and Rabiu were injured.
However, Agyemang Badu’s interest in playing in the top Spanish championship is contingent on Huelvo’s ability to maintain their position in the top level of Spanish league. At this time, they are ranked dead last in the Spanish league.
Agyemang Badu has not played for Kumasi Asante Kotoko since sustaining an injury at the CHAN Championship for home based players in La Cote d’Ivoire. However, before heading to Europe, the young international would like to see Kumasi Asante Kotoko reach a respectable place.
At the conclusion of the European League season, Samuel Inkoom will also make his debut in Europe. Inkoom, a member of the Black Stars and the country’s top full back, has signed with French powerhouse Paris St. Germain. Despite offers from Switzerland, Spain, and other Eastern bloc countries, Inkoom stuck with the France arrangement in order to further his football career.
The French are notorious for smoothing over many of the continent’s rough skills. Abedi Pele, a Ghanaian football legend, benefited from French philosophy throughout his time as a star with Lens and then Olympique Marseille, when he was instrumental in the club’s 1993 European Championship victory.
Michael Essien, a former star for Bastia and current star for Olympique Lyon, is the most recent recipient. Inkoom, unlike many other Ghanaian athletes, would not be participating in tryouts. The French club has reportedly offered him an incentive fee to join them.
Without the two, Kotoko’s problems are only going to worsen. The move would strengthen the player stock of the Fabulous club, which has seen its fortune sink in recent decades. During the second half of the Ghanaian football season, Kotoko did not receive enough replacement players. The club’s sole successful transfer was the purchase of Gomoa Fetteh Feyernoord Academy’s Harrison Afful.
