Most of the major leagues have ended but there are still a number of Ghanaian players vital to their teams’
Black Stars goalkeeper had to return to his club Strømsgodset. Why? His club begged coach Dr. Kwesi Appiah and the GFA to bring back their trusted number one for one game since they were haemorrhaging with him being away. They had lost a game to Stabæk and were not about to risk another. Kwarasey would join the Black Stars in Holland after their home game with Rosenborg. Read on to find out how well Kwarasey did.
Former Hearts of Oak and Inter Allies attacker, Karim Sadat, has moved to Sweden to play in the second tier league, Superettan, with Landskrona. Last weekend, he made his debut, coming off the bench to provide the assist for the winner. This weekend, he scored his first goal, again coming off the bench.
