“When I was young like around my 20’s everybody was saying that I have talent,” he told Pulse Ghana Sports earlier this month.

“In football, we have ups and downs. Sometimes it happens, and I sat down and analysed certain things that I realised was wrong with me.

“When I went to Latina, unfortunately, I got a groin problem which took me out for four to 5 months.

“I just put my bad fortunes aside and put things in place with my personal advisor Sharaj Ahmed and we came with a solution.

“This is what is working for me now and I am following that trend.”
