The full back position has become an avenue of immense importance in the modern game and does not need to be overemphasized before its relevance is situated in the context of attacking and defending.
One player who has become the embodiment of the modern day full back is Bismark Duah of Accra Young Wise Football Club in the Division One Zone Three League.
Playing from the left back position, Duah’s versatility has seen him run riots from the wide left hand side of the Accra Young Wise defense.
His awesome speed and excellent crossing ability has made him unmatched amongst his peers this season which has led to his team mates bestowing him with the moniker Patrick Evra.
Trusted by the Accra Young Wise gaffer, Abubakar Nassam, Duah has established himself as one of the club’s elite assets so far.
He has taken the Division One Zone Three League by storm on the back of his unprecedented form with four assists to boot, and winning four Man of the Match (MoTM) awards in Zone Three of the Division One League before the suspension of the league due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Duah’s Man-of-the-match accolades came against Hearts of Lions, Akosombo Krystal Palace, Danbort FC and Agbozume Weavers.
His imperious individual form has not had a telling effect on his side as Young Wise occupy thr 15th spot with ten points in the Division One Zone Three League.
