Ghana Premier League legend Bernard Dong Bortey says his dream is to coach or be the manager for Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.
The Accra Hearts of Oak SC legend Bernard Don Bortey has disclosed that his coaching ambitions transcends Ghana and Africa.
The former U-17-star and 2022 Ghana Premier League top scorer says Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are his targets in terms of aspirations.
“That’s not where I’m targeting, although we start from somewhere. But for me, my target is to coach Real Madrid, Barcelona, or Juventus. I said this thing on radio some time ago, and today I’m saying it on TV.”
“Even then, I wasn’t a coach. I said I’ll coach Barcelona when I become a coach. Ghanaians lashed out at me me, saying I can’t.”
“Maybe it looks huge in the eyes of humans, but it’s not huge in God’s eyes,” he said in an interview with Onua TV.
The former Black Stars player continued by explaining he would achieve his wild dream of the big teams in Europe.
“Because the ones who are coaching these teams were players like Don Boartey, and now they are coaching. So if Don Boartey says he will be a coach, why not support me with prayers rather than criticising that I can’t do it? I know that with what I’m saying, I’m not going to give up. That is why they call me the humble Lion. I’m strong.”
Don Bortey is a four-time Ghana Premier League title winner with the club, Accra Hearts of Oak SC and one CAF Confederations Cup in 2005 against bitterest rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC.
