Clifford Aboagye: I’m working towards my Black Stars debut

Former Ghana Under-20 star, Clifford Aboagye has reiterated that he is working tirelessly to earn his maiden Black Stars cap.

Aboagye – a former Inter Allies attacking midfielder – was named the third-best at the 2013 Fifa U-20 World Youth Championship staged in Turkey.

The scintillating performance of the nimble-footed player saw him move to Italian side Udinese before being loaned to Spanish side Granada.

Much was expected of him due to his huge talent and success at the youth level coupled with the standard he set for himself. But he has not glittered as was predicted many.

Aboagye, 25, who now plays in Mexico, says he is getting himself ready for a Black Stars debut.

“Getting my Black Stars debut has always been something I work towards. I know it could come at any moment so I have to get myself ready. I have done it at the youth level and Ghanaians know what I can do,” he told  TV3’s Juliet Bawuah.

“I knew there are a lot of people that are not following me in Mexico, but those who watch my games know I am playing regularly.

He also indicated that much will be dependent on the head coach since the team has a lot of good players at where he does best.

“It also depends on the coach because he knows the set up he wants to play. I believe I can give support to our attacking midfield to assist the strikers; that is what I am good at.

“We already have good players in the middle for Ghana and I don’t think I will have problems playing with them,” he added.

Clifford Aboagye is currently plying his trade in the Mexican topflight with Querétaro FC, on loan from another Mexican side, Atlas FC – a side he joined after leaving Spanish side Granada CF.
