Hearts of Oak coach Edward Nii Odoom has confidence in teenage striker Franklyn Owusu and has tipped him to become an important player. 

Owusu has been promoted from the youth team to the first team of the Phobians ahead of the new season.

His promotion came few weeks after he was handed debut national team call-up as he has been included in U-20 squad.

Odoom, who doubles as the coach of the Hearts youth team, popularly known as Auroras, has spoken highly of the player.

“We will continue to work on him now that he is with the first team, and, I am very confident that going forward, he will become an important player for the club”, the coach said as quoted by the website of the club.

Owusu hails from Ejisu in the Ashanti region of Ghana and began his football career with Koto Stars a youth side in Sefwi in the Western north of the country.

He attended the Ejisu Secondary School where he stared for the school team and he idolizes Ghana’s all-time leading goal scorer at international level Asamoah Gyan.
