Ghana forward, Samuel Tetteh has told Footy-ghana in an interview he wants to follow the success story of Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah in the Major League Soccer [MLS].
The former WAFA graduate joined New York Red Bulls on a six-month loan with an option to extend.
Tetteh is joining a league where compatriots Afful and Mensah are household names with Columbus Crew.
“I want to emulate the success story of Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah because they are doing well with their club.
“Over the years, they have helped their team and have been successful. I want to follow the footsteps so I can also become as successful as they are.
“Football will take you to places and you have to sell yourself in any league you find yourself. Watching them (Afful and Mensah) play for their club and being successful, I want to take a cue and sell myself as well,” Tetteh stated.
Last season, Tetteh played on loan at Austrian Bundesliga side LASK Linz where he scored 7 goals with 5 assists in 29 matches.
He returned to parent club Red Bull Salzburg after the spell but has been shipped him out on loan again for the next six months.
