Former Ghana Black Stars goalkeeper William Amamoo has advised young players to push hard in order to achieve their career goals.
Amamoo whose professional career spans 19 years formally said good bye to the globular leather Sunday with a testimonial game in Sweden.
The 34-year-old who spent most of his playing days in Sweden pointed out that talent alone is not enough and up and coming players should be forceful and do what is expected of them in order to succeed.
“Young players should be disciplined and they should never ever give up. In this profession, there are many ups and downs. You must be a fighter and be very focused in order to make it,” Amamoo told Dailymailgh.com
“I enjoyed my career very much. My memorable moments are many but I will pick winning all seven awards and being voted as the best keeper in Romanian Serie A during the 2002/2003 season as my best. I was so proud as an African. In Sweden also I am one of the best all-time keepers in Angermanland.”
The retired goalkeeper further thanked all the stars who honored his testimonial game as he finally hanged his gloves.
“I will like to thank my friends, especially Essam El Hadary of Egypt who is Africa’s all-time best goalkeeper, former Romanian international Florentin Petre as well as Marius Niculae and all journalists who came to support me,” he added.
