Ghanaian youngster Appiah-Kubi joins Australian top-flight side
Western Sydney Wanderers FC today officially unveiled one of its inaugural players, Kwabena Appiah-Kubi at the media launch of the new Club today at Parramatta Stadium.
Parramatta Eagles FC have agreed to release the player to take the next step in his football career after spending the season playing in the black and white of PFC.
Arriving in Australia from New Zealand as a nine-year-old, Appiah-Kubi only started playing football from the age of 10 in the Granville Association and came of age in the western Sydney region at Parramatta City, Granville Rage and Spirit FC.
Following a season for the Central Coast Mariners National Youth League team, Appiah-Kubi signed with Parramatta FC and has played 10 games this season, catching the eye of Western Sydney Wanderers FC head coach Tony Popovic with his scintillating pace and natural ability.
“He’s a very exciting young player and one I look forward to working with,” said Popovic.
“When a young guy comes through with so much potential it is both a challenge and an opportunity to help develop and guide such a player.
“We’ll start training next month and I can tell you now that we will be ready for October 6.”
