Ghana Â defender Harrison Afful has backed Emmanuel Clottey to excel at Esperance after he completed a three-year move to the Tunisian giants.
The 25-year-old joins the Blood and Gold from Berekum Chelsea after an impressing heavily for the ambitious Ghanaian side.
Afful, who has been a key figure for Esperance over the past three seasons, is confident his Black Stars teammates can make the grades at the Tunis-based side.
â€œEsperance wants to retain the title in the champs league, that is why they are chasing Clottey and he is someone who always scores,â€ Afful said
â€œIf you have a striker like Clottey I think every team would love to play with and chase after him.
â€œEsperance have made the right choice, we just hope all will go well for him. I believe in Clottey and I know what he can do.â€
Clottey is the leading goal scorer in the CAF Champions Laegue with 12 goals and cost the reigning African champions US$ 1.5 million.
He won the Ghana Goal King Award in 2007 which got him a big move to Wacker Innsbruck but failed to make an impact at the Austrain side.
