Entente Sportive Setifenne forward Daniel Lomotey has sworn to exorcise the ghost haunting Ghanaian players in North Africa.
The Black Meteors goal poacher inked a three-year deal for the Algerian topfligt side last month, adding up to the plethora of top Ghanaian talents who have switched to North Africa.
His move awoke the near-dreaded history of Ghanaian players in North Africa, following a huge chunk of players with talents equivalent to rubies left crestfallen after a nightmarish stint in the Arabian countries.
Names such as Charles Taylor, Emmanuel Clottey, Torric Jebrin and recently Shafiu Mumuni are but a few top talents that struggled to excel in North Africa that is not to say Harrison Afful and John Antwi’s exploits overwrites that of the many talents that have fallen.
However, Lomotey wants to address the old-age challenge affecting players from the talent-plenty West African nation. Speaking to Kumasi-based media outlet Oyerepa FM the goal poacher sworn:
“I will make sure I don’t add up to the numerous Ghanaian players who didn’t survive in the Northern part of Africa. I want to rewrite that story.”
Lomotey would have the biggest of opportunities to walk the talk when his new side cross swords with Asante Kotoko in a two-legged tie for a spot in the 2020-2021 CAF Confederations Cup group stages.
