Ghanaian goalie Brimah joins Tenerife

Published on: 20 July 2011

Ghanaian goalkeeper Razak Brimah has joined Spanish side Tenerife after leaving rival Real Betis.

The 24-year-old signed the deal on Tuesday after agreeing terms over a permanent contract with the traditional club.

Brimah signed a two-year contract with the club, can exclusively reveal.

“I am delighted to sign for Tenerife and I am happy to join the club and help it achieve laurels,” Brimah said on Tuesday.

Asked about his qualities, Razak said: "The truth is I do not like to talk much about myself. I have to prove myself everyday that I am in training. I work hard and fight challenges as they come. "

"The bottom line in this life is to be humble. This is how I think I can achieve my goal.”

The move could pave the way for the shot-stopper to get some regular playing time which was a problem for him at his previous club Betis.

The move would help him in his ambition to fight for a place in 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 have to play to develop my talent that’s why I could not take the offer w

Brimah made his debut with the first team Betis in the Copa del Rey match against Salamanca in September last year.

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