Germany-born Ghanaian teenager Phil Ofosu-Ayeh is resisting attempts to play for the European country, insisting he wantsÂ to play for the Ghana Under-20 team.
Born to Ghanaian father Nana Kojo Ofosu-Ayeh and German mother Manuela Schlutter, the 1.83 meter tall player, has a special featureÂ of adapting to every role on the field.
He currently plies his trade with Regionaliga side SV Wilhelmshaven and has shown great desire to play for Ghana.
Ofosu-Ayeh caught the eyes of German officials at age 4 when he mesmerized opponents during their community games and has since been monitored by Bundesliga side Schalke 04.
â€œI want to play for my fatherâ€™s country and that is Ghana and nothing else, I have watched them several times and that is where my heart belongs,â€ he stated.
â€˜â€˜I know I have what it takes to fit into their team whenever I am invited.â€
He has been likened to Kevin-Prince Boateng who was born in Germany to a Ghanaian father and the German mother.
