Amofah hoping for recognition in Ghana


Amofah, who scored three goals in 10 games for Bloemfontein Celtic in the Absa Premiership, is still recovering from a double blow that set his career back in South Africa.

The first was a severe calf injury and then his father passed away in Ghana.

_quote“It has been hard to come to terms with the death of father because he was an inspiration in my life. He used to encourage me in everything I did in life. I used to talk to him after almost every game since I arrive in South Africa.

“But through the grace of God, I have managed to handle the situation and am coming to terms with his passing.

“I am now focused on playing football again and so wherever he is, he will be happy about my success.

“My injury is now okay and I’m working hard at training and am hoping that I will be part of the line-up to face Santos here at home on Sunday.”

The former Porcupine Warriors’ hitman says he is worried by the fact that no-one from his homeland association has made contact with him since joining the Free State side.

“I made a number of appearances in both the national Under-20 and 23 squads whilst still playing in Ghana; but since moving to South Africa it seems no one on the national team bench is following my progress.

“It almost seems as if there is no honour in playing in South Africa, and I want to achieve my dream of playing for the Black Stars.”
