Bechem United icon Augustine Okrah is a priceless talent – agent Oliver Arthur

Published on: 23 March 2014

Bechem United playmaker Augustine Okrah has been described as the most priceless emerging talent in the country by his agent Oliver Arthur. 

Arthur’s comments came after the youngster scored twice to give his side a 2-1 home victory over Wa All Stars in the First Capital Plus Premier League last Saturday.

‘‘Correct me if am wrong, we haven’t seen such a talent with his ability in his 20-years old bracket anywhere in the local league for at least the last 20 years,” he said.

Okrah has now scored a brace in successive matches to take his league tally to 9 for the season.

With 13 goals overall and 9 assists since joining Bechem last August, calls for him to be included in Ghana’s 2014 World Cup are expected to surge in the coming weeks.

‘‘We have now seen him [Okrah] prove beyond all reasonable doubts that he is Ghana’s most priceless emerging talent in the local football scene right now,” Arthur added.

“As his agent, I feel very lucky because he seems destined to make it big in football.’’

    Masa cut the crap and stop hallucinating, this norm of over hyping average players should stop. I bet you this guy will struggle to make the cut outside GH, simply because he's not there yet. I mean he's not matured yet and far from been a complete player. Former goal king Baffour was also over hyped like this and we all saw how he struggled in a mediocre SA league, now he's even struggling to find his feet in the domestic league. And by the way who told you he's a real 20 yr old? Lol I wouldn't wanna further on that.

    I find it difficult why the handlers of our u 20 team have consistently ignored this boy.I think he's a gem.
