“If you look at his tactics [and] style of play, I think it’s going to help Chelsea.”
The Black Stars left-back also welcomes potential the arrival of fellow countryman Kwadwo Asamoah. He believes his quality will be vital for Chelsea.
“I’m looking forward to it. It will be a very good [signing] for the manager.
“I don’t know the system he [Conte] is going to play, but as we all know, Kwadwo is a very good player. For sure he’s going to add something to the team,” the former Asante Kotoko loanee added.
