Interview: Gambia goalie Modou Jobe talks Wafu Cup + Kotoko

Gambia goalkeeper Modou Jobe has revealed being approached about joining Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko.

The shot-stopper was the only experienced player among a group of teens presented by The Gambia at the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations currently underway in the Central region of Ghana.

The Scorpions exited the competition on the opening day on controversial grounds after a penalty awarded against them helped the Black Stars snatch a 1-0 victory last Saturday.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Takoradi-based Radio Silver journalist Stephen Kwame Yeboah, the 28-year-old Real de Banjul goalkeeper revealed his admiration for the Ghana league.

According to Modou Jobe, he would grab an opportunity to play club football in Ghana, adding that someone from Kotoko contacted him a couple of months ago but there has been nothing concrete yet.

“If I receive a good offer, I will be happy to come and play here. I’ve been following the Ghanaian league. I think it has very good players.

“I have a friend here; he is even in the national team – Felix [Annan, Kotoko goalkeeper]. We normally chat on Instagram and I’ve been following Ghana football.

“Honestly, I was contacted by Asante Kotoko about three months ago but I have not heard anything again. They contacted me the last time we came here and played a friendly game with this CHAN team here and lost 2-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
