“Being outside and for me to be able to follow the league I want to, if I don’t have a training and a game and there is a game I want to watch, maybe I want to watch RTU, Kotoko, Hearts of Oak or any team, I’m able to watch and that is a great achievement and it helps the local players to also profile themselves”
