Elche midfielder Michael Anaba admits he’s still developing as a player and not obsessed about breaking into the first team of the Spanish side.

The former Kotoko combative midfielder is yet to break into the first team – but has become a constant feature for the youth side.

Elche manager Fran Escriba is keeping a close eye on the progress of the Ghana youth international, who is making waves at the youth side.

The ex-Kotoko combative enforcer is determined to work on all areas of his game to break into the senior team.

“I am learning all the time. It’s a learning curve for me and so I’m really enjoying my time here,” he told

“Here in Spain, it’s more of a passing game where you have to run and work your sucks out a lot.

“Obviously it’s a bit different from my time at Kotoko but I’m adjusting well.

“I know it’s just a matter of time before I make my senior debut.

‘I always say I am learning. Every day, I want to train and I want to learn. That’s all I want to do.

‘I just want to be a better player and give everything for this club.’

The 19-year-old has been an important piece for the youth side since he joined at the start of the season.

    And what about Clifford Aboakye at Granda? After the under 20 world, this excellent player has been forgotten about. We have to help him so that he does not suffer the same faith as Ranford Osei.
