Germany-born whiz kid wants to play for Ghana

Published on: 11 January 2011

 

Germany-born Ghanaian teenager Phil Ofosu-Ayeh is resisting attempts to play for the European country, insisting he wants 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 feature 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.

“I want to play for my father’s country and that is Ghana and nothing else, I have watched them several times and that is where my heart belongs,” he stated.

‘‘I know I have what it takes to fit into their team whenever I am invited.”

He has been likened to Kevin-Prince Boateng who was born in Germany to a Ghanaian father and the German mother.

    Ghanasoccernet, you are doing very well but please check your typing and lines very well. This is the leading sports site in the country.The qoute "Ofosu-Ayeh caught the eyes of German officials at age 4 when he mesmerized opponents during their community games" cannot be true. At age 4 the boy could not have participated in the community games. Age 14 is more realistic. I'll plead that you take time to read comments from readers. This way, some of the mistakes can be avoided. Thanks

    Ghanasoccernet is a lovely site, but their failure to sometimes name the writer and or cite the source of their information make a true story look vague. Come on guys, you can do better. God Bless Ghana!

    Having a GH father doesnt guarantee him a spot, but if he is gud enough then we ii all see. There are so many Gh players here in the U.S playin in the MLS but no body mention them in any conversation but I knw their time ii come.
