Ghana's No. 1

Published on: 20 July 2020

Talented winger Mathew Cudjoe has insisted that he never felt pressured to impress for Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko. 

The 16-yer-old, who joined on a season-long loan deal admitted playing for Kotoko comes with a lot of pressure because of their huge fan base but he was never under pressure.

Cudjoe gave an impressive account of himself before the season was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He is famously remembered for his great display in 2-1 win against Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports Stadium.

With the game ending in a stalemate, Cudjoe, a second-half substitute, helped Kotoko win a penalty which was converted by Naby Keita.

“It is true Kotoko and Hearts are the biggest clubs in the country and playing for them comes with a lot of pressure but I was never intimidated by the huge followers. I am rather motivated when I see a huge crowd. I want to entertain them and make them happy with my style of play,” Anim Cudjoe said.

He made 6 appearances in the Ghana Premier League for Kotoko. The loan deal is said to have expired after the season ended was cancelled.
