The 25-year old who has played with Sulley Muntari claims the team needs the services of the veteran due to his huge positive influence on their play.
“He always drives us on during play. We the playing body need him though I don’t know about the GFA. He is a kind man and always plays a positive role on the field with the team” he told Happy Fm.
