Tricky winger, Yaw Annor, who signed for Obuasi-based Ashgold yesterday has recounted how he made a nuisance of Theo Hernandez and Mateo Kovacic I a Copa del Rey match during his stint with Fuenlabrada.
Fresh from his superlative performance in the 2016 football season which he capped with a match winning display against Okwahu United in the finals of that season’s MTN FA Cup finals, Yaw Annor moved out of Ghana for pastures anew.
His next destination after courting the interest of both local and overseas clubs, the wing wizard landed in the lower tiers of Spanish football with Fuenlabrada.
During one of his memorable moments at the Spanish outfit, Yaw Annor channeled his inner beast to run assault on the wings making life difficult for French defender, Theo Hernandez (now with AC Milan) and Mateo Kovacic (now with Chelsea) in the 2017 Copa del Rey tie with giants Real Madrid – Los Blancos qualified on 4-2 aggregate win.
“I gave Theo Hernandez and Mateo Kovacic a tough time when FC Fuenlabrada came up against Real Madrid in a Copa Del Rey match in 2017”. – Yaw Annor recounted on Sikka 89.5FM.
Annor is expected to conjure similar of such performances and even more at Ashgold as they represent Ghana in next season’s CAF Confederations Cup.
