Quartey, who was signed by Amakhosi as a defender earlier this season, was deployed as anchor man against Ajax Cape Town last Friday in the absence of Tinashe Nengomashe during the Nedbank Cup in Durban and the former Ashanti Goldfields SC defender succeeded in his new position with flying colours.
Amakhosi coach Muhsin Ertugral is full of praise for Quartey’s performance against Ajax Cape Town last week.
_quote“He played well in the position. He defended well and most of his passes to his teammates were good.
“Jonathan was one of the best players on the field and I think he deserved the Man of the Match award.
“With Nengomashe now back from suspension, it remains to be seen if Ertugral will stuck with his winning formula against the visiting Usuthu this weekend.
"It all depends of the players’ performance at training during the week. Nengomashe has been our best player in the team this season and Quartey, despite injuries, has never disappointed when ever given the chance to play.
“I will decide later whether Jonathan goes back to his natural position at the back, or remain in the midfield,” the coach adds.
