Former Ghana FA boss Alhaji MND Jawula expects winger Christian Atsu to shine at the 2014 World Cup, labeling him as the next ‘Abedi Pele’.

Atsu, 22, has been on cloud nine on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.

The Chelsea product was voted Vitesse Player of the season after a fabulous campaign.

Alhaji Jawula has tipped the youngster to take the world by storm at the global showpiece

“Let me say on this platform that Atsu is the next Abedi Pele take it or leave it,” he told Accra-based Asempa FM.

“This young lad’s best is yet to come and I believe it will begin from this World Cup that we are going.”

The ex-Porto dribbler has been a key member of the Black Stars in recent times and a sure bet to make the country’s squad for the tournament in the South American country.

    I think the AFCON experience will help Atsu put up a decent performance this time around at the WC, he's seen lotta action this season and I think that will surely help his course. However it remains to be seen whether he can step up to the plate or not.
