Former Ghana U-20 star, Clifford Aboagye, says he is hoping for a Black Stars call up under CK Akonnor.

Aboagye after the FIFA World Cup in 2013 in Turkey was tipped to make it to the Black Stars but failed to get a call up under Kwesi Appiah.

However, Akonnor in a recent interview has stated that he was monitoring the progress of the player in Mexico.

The 25-year-old now plays his football for Mexican side, Club Tijuana and he wants to keep working hard until he gets a call-up.

“I’m really honoured to know that he is monitoring my progress," he said.

“I didn’t get the opportunity to debut under Coach Kwesi Appiah, but hopefully I can get the opportunity to play under C.K Akonnor who I know likes the kind of football I play.

“So far as the coach has me on his radar, I don’t have anything else to do than to keep working hard until I got my call up," he added.

Aboagye who previously played for Inter Allies, Granada, was named the third-best player in the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey.
