Former Ghana U-20 star, Clifford Aboagye says he has no regrets but rather grateful for how his career has turned out so far.
Aboagye, 25 – whose career journey has taken him to Mexico – believes there’s more time to meet expectations and still relishes his chances of returning to play in Europe’s top leagues, having previously been on the books of Udinese and Granada.
Formerly with Ghana Premier League side Inter Allies, Clifford Aboagye emerged as a Bronze Ball winner in the 2013 Fifa Under-20 World Cup, sitting behind Manchester United and French international Paul Pogba and Uruguayan and Tigres Nicolay Lopez.
Speaking to TV3’s Juliet Bawuah in his latest media engagement, the midfielder who led Ghana to a Bronze place medal in the 2013 U20 FIFA World Cup in Turkey, said he is aware of the expectations back home and believes time is still on his side to “break through.”
“Ghanaians are expecting me to be playing in one of the big leagues in Europe and so far as I have the talent, I believe with hard work I can break through. I am rather grateful and not regretful.
“People are thinking i should be at par with my colleagues I played the world cup with, but when I look back I feel I should be grateful. I feel it is a gradual process and I have a lot of years ahead of me to continue my career,” Aboagye said.
Clifford Aboagye is now playing on loan at Mexican side Gallos de Querétaro.
