Playing for all these clubs during my football career, Ashantigold fc, BEREKUM Chelsea fc,Kumasi Asante kotoko sc,Atlético de Madrid , Etoile sportive du Sahel , Vojvodina fc , Saham club,Al Nahda fc ,Al Ansar fc,Al faiha fc and many more.
It has been a tremendous honor representing all these clubs as player. With much sadness but without regret, I realize that I am no longer able to adhere to the unwavering standard of excellence that professional football demands.
I love the game of football so much, and I know there is truly only one acceptable way to play. Knowing I can no longer compete at a level that I find acceptable.
This decision is mine alone, and although I know this will not bring me happiness, it is the right and honorable action to take at this time in my life.
I cherished every moment of my Football career, and it has been such a blessing to play the game for as long as I have played. Reflecting on my years playing football, my current situation, reminded me of the many people I owe humble, sincere gratitude.
No one has felt the burden of my physical pain and mental anguish more than my Family,my brother Rafiu,Ishmael yartey a friend and a brother ,Mubarak wakaso ,John benson Anti Daniel and Sadat.
They have been with me throughout my pain.I will like to thank them .thank all the coaches who contributed in my football career.Last but not the least, thanks to all my playing mates in all the clubs I played with against …I will still be in football but this time not as a player …GOODBYE🙏🤝..ADA99.
