Norway born goalkeeper, Adams Kwarasey whose nationality switch was recently completed to make him a Ghanaian International has told Citi Sports in an exclusive interview that he is the right man to step in as number one after Richard ‘Olele’ Kingson retires.
Fifa, last week informed the Ghana Football Association (GFA) that the 23 year-old goalkeeper was eligible to play since he had not played in any official international ‘A’ match for Norway.
His switch comes at a time when many Ghanaians are wondering which goal keeper will be good enough to take over from the ageing Kingson.
The FC Strømsgodset goalkeeper told Citi Sports that he is confident of becoming the heir apparent to Richard Kingson.
“I think I can be the next goalkeeper to take over from Kingson…I don’t know yet but I would work hard to develop to become as good as possible for Ghana and to come out as an international goalkeeper”.
“I have the potential to be a very good goalkeeper and I know that my time will come”.
He added that despite the fact that Kingson has been committing some unpardonable mistakes in recent times; he thinks ‘Olele’ is the best goalkeeper Ghana has ever had.
“He is an experienced goalkeeper and he has been playing for many years. Every player has his ups and downs. Maybe he is having his difficulties for the national team in the last couple of matches but it doesn’t mean he is a bad goalkeeper, I think he is the best Ghana has ever had”.
