Ghanaian goalkeeper Brimah quits Real Betis

Published on: 08 June 2011

Ghanaian goalkeeper Razak Brimah has quit Spanish side Real Betis over lack of playing time at the top level.

The 23-year-old met club officials this week over terms of his permanent contract with the traditional club.

Even though they offered him a permanent deal to stay he was not guaranteed first team place which resulted in his decision to quit.

Brimah says even though he wants to play at the top level, lack of first team action is hampering his desire to play for the Ghana national team.

“I have been sitting on the bench for two seasons now and for the target I have set myself it is not good enough,” Brimah told

“I understand that there are two senior goalkeepers ahead of me but I also have to play to develop my talent that’s why I could not take the offer.

“I want to play for the Black Stars and sitting on the bench every week will not help my cause so I sadly decided to say bye to the club.

“They have been very supportive of my career and I appreciate it. But I need to move somewhere where I can play regularly.”

 Razak, who turns 24 in a few weeks, made his debut with the first team Betis in the Copa del Rey match against Salamanca in September.

The goalkeeper was poached from Spanish second division side Polideportivo Ejido after he had excelled in the league tow seasons ago.

    I think you've made the right decision brother. you are already 24, and you are not getting younger. Look for a team that will give you regular play. Thats where my questioon comes. Have you already gotten a team after you? Or you are now going to look for one yourself? Hmmmm, let bra Laryea advice on this one.

    u see oh! GFA and his cohorts, what are they doing? what monitoring have they set in place at all. Is Olele going to keep for ever or what? eih! yen hwe no yie oh! They are not doing anything to get new keepers.we've not heard anything on Adam Kwarasey's issue.This Brimah guy too shd have been monitored and given the chance to justify himself. After all Olele was sitting on the bench as Ghana's No 1 Goalkeeper.When Olele was given his first call up, i beleive he wasn't 'Mr Perfect'.let us try and give the chance to the Kwarasey's, the Daniel Agyei's, the Brimah's and other young Goalkeepers to build their confidence and Experience. Am sure PLAVI was angry at the goals Olele conceded agst Korea.Cheap!Cheap!! goals if u ask me.Olele must rest for others oooooo!tom. Aaaaaaaaaba!!!!!!!

    Never heard of this guy before, but I think it's time for the GFA to start following Ghanaian goalies in his age group since Kingson isn't doing to well lately.. Hope they both find a new club to play for though!
