Al Ahly coach Al Badry claims Berekum Chelsea striker Emmanuel Clottey is being over-hyped.
The 24-year-old has emerged as goal scoring brand on the continent after netting 12-times in the Caf Champions League.
Many have touted the goal scoring prowess of the Ghanaian international but the Al Ahly trainer claims the former Great Olympics man is overblown.
“ Clottey is a good player but he is not the super attacker everyone makes him out to be. I saw him in the last match and though I liked his way of playing I insist that he is not the best we have faced,” Al Badry is quoted by supersport.
” I even spoke with our former Ghanaian player Felix Ahmed Aboagye and he agreed with my opinion. But I would still like to have a player like Clottey in my team but his club absurd price on him pretty much negates that from happening,”
“I badly need a midfielder and a good attacker. I can wait on the midfielder but I can’t with the forward. My team suffers because of this.”
Clottey is just a goal shy of equaling Stepehn Worgu’s 13-goal haul set in 2008.
