Charles Takyi reveals St Pauli commitment

Published on: 15 September 2011

Charles Takyi has broken his silence over a reported move to promoted German Bundesliga side Augsburg in the summer.

Augsberg coach Andreas Rettig was a huge admirer of the midfielder and had wanted to whisk him away from the club.

St Pauli's relegation from the Bundesliga comes in conjunction with Augsburg's promotion to the top flight

It was feared the Hamburg-based club may struggle to hold onto Takyi.

But Rettig was put off by a £600,000 price tag on him.

Takyi has revealed he never wanted to leave the club.

"I've always enjoyed playing for St. Pauli. I never said that I want to leave. I want to play for regularly to get a place in the Ghana national team. There is nothing wrong over here," the 26-year-old said.

"It's now time for a fresh start. I'm here at at St. Paul with my head and heart."

    Thanks bro for your sense of maturity in passing your comment. Some people just come to this website to insult others. We should rather be thankful to ghanasoccernet.Com for the good work they have been doing in getting us informed and educated on all that is going on in the football world and stop the insults becos that will not solve any thing. We should rather offer constructive criticism like what Keith has done.

    Global, Chelsea Man U and so called big clubs do not have all the best players in the world. there are small clubs with some better players than those on the so called big clubs. The big clubs only have a lot of good players because they pay more money. ghanaian players are not on the big clubs because our GFA doe not know how to expose a lot of them in international matches. when Players play internationaly that is when scouts valuate them well. because they are playing against better talent. Ghana's has only U 17, U 20 and U23 before the senior team ( Black Stars) the American and European countries have National teams in all Ages There are U12,U13,U14,U15,U16,U17,U19,U20,U21,U23 and in each age group They have a large pool of players. GFA can do the same, but do not. So very few of our players are exposed to the better scouts. Most of our players on good teams all got there because they were lucky to be picked for the U17 or U20 national teams. The road to get a good contract is very dificult. You could be a very good player but if you are not seen at the right time your carear can or will not start or go on the right path. some of the players on the big teams might not be good for the black stars either. This is why countries like France, England, Agentina have been having problems in recent past. Too many players in big clubs and they could not play together. Keith from Germany. The coach identifies a player and asks to have him transfered to a team, but the team manager makes the deal. The coach does not buy players. The article is stating that The manager was doing the deal with Takyi club
