Covid-19 restrictions are now relaxed; lockdown eased, and the 2020/21 Ghana premier league season is just weeks away from take-off.
The transfer season is ended, coaches are now fine-tuning their squad ahead of what’s expected to be an exhilarating football season in Ghana.
Courtesy Angel Sports, we bring you the top ten (10) teen players you should keep an eye on in the upcoming season.
Jonah Attuquaye joined Legon Cities in the last transfer window from Berekum Chelsea. The 19-year-old forward scored once and assisted twice last season which attracted interest from the Royals who followed up to secure his signature.
Since making his debut in last season Ghana premier league, 17-year-old Ebenezer Ackahbi has dazzled his way into to the hearts of local football fans especially Medeama supporters. The player is outspoken about his quest to win a league title with yellow and mauve side.
He made nine appearances for the club before the league was truncated and later cancelled due to COVID-19.
Daniel Afriyie Barnieh
With a combination of pace, dribbling, linkup play, and intelligence, the 19-year-old is regarded as one of the country’s youngest prospects.
Despite his relatively young age, Afriyie was a regular for Hearts of Oak in the truncated Ghana premier league last season, making 10 appearances and scoring once. He is currently the captain of the Ghana U20 team.
Mathew Anim Cudjoe
The 16-year-old was a toast of football fans in Ghana’s version of El Classico with a scintillating performance for Kotoko against Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium last season.
The Young Apostles player joined Kotoko on loan in the 2019-20 football season and has since been a household name in the domestic scene, attracting interest from clubs in Europe notably German giants Bayern Munich. The teenager understandably was part of the deal that saw the signing of Asamoah Gyan to Legon Cities.
The teenager is set to spend the 2020-21 Ghana premier league with Cities.
Born September 15, 2001, 19-year-old Mohammed Zakari is one of the highly-rated central midfielders in the Ghanaian domestic top division. The right-nibble footed player is often deployed in attacking position due to his quick feet and ability to penetrate opposing defensive setups.
Last season’s truncated league saw the midfielder feature in all Inter Allies fourteen games, scoring twice.
Keep an eye out for the second part of the top Ghanaian youngsters to play in this year’s Ghanaian top-flight league.
