"Special talent" Augustine Okrah deserves Black Stars call-up- Bechem CEO

Published on: 18 February 2014
Augustine Okrah is in top form for Bechem United in the Ghana Premier League.

Bechem United Chief Executive Kinglsey Osei Bonsu believes Augustine Okrah is the best player in the First Capital Plus Premier League and deserves a Black Stars call-up. 

Bonsu was awed by Okrah’s perky display in Bechem United’s famous 2-0 win at AshantiGold on Sunday.

Okrah has emerged as the live-wire of the ‘Pride of Ahafo’ and has scored nine goals in all competitions.

He has been likened to Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi by Osei-Bonsu who is calling for his inclusion in the national team.''Okrah is a fantastic footballer, an extremely inventive and influential player with a gifted special technical ability. He is the future of Ghana and his club,” Osei-Bonsu said.

''He consistency split opens defences so easily, passes ball with pinpoint accuracy, scores goals and provides assists with his extraordinary vision and creativity.”

Okrah, 20, joined Bechem United on free transfer after an unsuccessful spell at Asante Kotoko.

    It would have been better if this touting of the player as Ghana's Messi had come from coaches and officials of other clubs. The CEO saying he has the best player does not carry a lot of weight even if it is true.
