New Cheetah FC signing, Abdulai Simba has revealed that he decided to join the club because of the opportunities available for young players.
The Division 2 League club on Monday morning announced that they have completed the signing of the 17-year old defender from Venomous Vipers FC to give them a squad boost for the upcoming season.
Speaking in his first interview, Abdulai Simba have disclosed why he turned down offers from Ghana Premier League sides Elmina Sharks and Ebusua Dwarfs to sign for Cheetah FC.
“I decided to join Cheetah FC, though it’s a division 2 club, because of the opportunities I believe are available for young players like me.
“From afar, I have been monitoring Cheetah FC for a very long time and it has been my dream to join the club. We thank Allah Almighty for this day. I am enthused at how the president Mr. Yartey is managing the club and how he is working with the players”, Abdulai Simba said as quoted on the Facebook page of his new club.
He continued, “Christian Atsu was playing for a division one club, Feyenoord and came down to a division two side, Cheetah FC and we all saw how his career turned out. For me, recently, as a young player it is not about the level of the league you play but the level of opportunities available to you at a club whiles you develop your young career”.
Abdulai Simba further described his transfer to Cheetah FC as a dream come true while noting that he will work his socks off to achieve his aim.
“All I can say for now is joining Cheetah FC is a dream come true and as a player I will work tirelessly to accomplish my purpose of joining the team”, the teenager concluded.
