Ghana has earned global reputation for producing top class defenders in the past, with the legendary Samuel Osei Kuffour leading the pack, keenly followed by Edward Agyemang Duah, Issah Ahmed and Salisu Mohammed who has made a big money move to Southampton in the English Premiership due to his resoluteness at the heart of defence of La Liga side, Valladolid.
At only 16, Bekoe Ransford might just be the next big gem with impregnable defensive qualities embodied in his bony frame.
Bekoe Ransford is a product of Storm Soccer Academy at Bepong in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
His ability to play as a typical advanced central defender and defensive midfield makes him a true utility player on the pitch for any coach.
Usually compared to Real Madrid legend, Sergio Ramos Garcia, the Ghanaian teen sensation has already drawn attention of the country’s bigwigs who are jostling for his signature.
Ransford’s peers and coaches have always waxed lyrical about his unique nature with or without the ball.
The youngster’s positioning ability, blocks, clearance and confidence in the air always stands him out.
He has been tipped by former Ghanaian International, Edward Agyemang Duah to monopolize in Ghana football.
Ghanasportsnews.com will keep its followers updated on the progress of the 16-year-old central defender.
