Vincent Atingah: I only need twenty minutes to prove myself to CK Akonnor

Former Hearts of Oak defender, Vincent Atingah has requested for just 20 minutes to prove his qualities to Black Stars coach Charles Akonnor.

The 26-year-old has experienced a rise in his career since leaving Hearts of Oak in 2018.

Atingah believes with just 20 minutes of action, he will break into the Black Stars starting eleven.

“I only need 20 minutes to prove my quality with the Black Stars.

“I don’t need anything beyond that, whether 30,45 or 90 minutes, no, I only need 20 minutes to prove myself to the Black Stars technical team.

“I am not bragging, because you all saw me play in the local league and even in the Wafu Tournament.

“Let me tell you that by two years I will be a regular player for the Black Stars,” Atingah told Akoma FM.

On his achievement, the former Ebusua Dwarfs stalwart named the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations as his biggest in his career.

Atingah in partnership with ex-Liberty Professionals man Samuel Sarfo marshalled the central defence where Ghana beat rivals Nigeria 4-1 to claim the trophy at the Cape Coast Stadium.

“So far the Wafu is my biggest achievement for Ghana.

“I have won individual man-of-the-match awards in the Ghana league and abroad but winning the Wafu tournament is the biggest in my career so far.

“It is every player’s dream to win a trophy for his nation and the Wafu tournament was a dream,” he stated.

Vincent Atingah started his senior career at Cape Coast Ebusua Dwarfs before joining Hearts of Oak for three seasons.

He signed for Albanian club KF Tirana before a stint at Kuwaiti side Al Qadsia.

Atingah currently plies his trade with five-time Kuwaiti champions, Al Shabab.
