Fofo Makes Waves In Italy

William Fofo (l) Ghanaian forward, Wisdom Fofo has been making waves since joining ASD Futbal Pesaro, a second division club in Italy at the beginning of this year's soccer season.

Information reaching this paper indicates that the former player of Liberty Professionals Babies and Suhum Maxbees left Ghana in 2002 for Italy where he first featured for F/C CCone before moving to Casternuvese, also a second division club in 2007/08.

Born in April 1984 at Newtown in Accra, Fofo was first discovered by the late coach Paul Lartey and he joined Cowlane Babies of Zongo Lane in Accra.

Many soccer analysts who have seen the strongly-built forward in action believe that he is the solution to the scoring problems of the Black Stars.

DAILY GUIDE SPORTS learnt that with Michael Essien, Anthony Abodai and Mathew Amoah being his playing mates at the Saint Augustine College in Cape Coast, the marksman could easily integrate into the Black Stars squad.

The Ghanaian, who is the top scorer for his club, has netted important goals that have moved the team to the third position in the 16-team championship to end in June this year, and Fofo has become the toast of fans who named him 'shadon', meaning a strongman.

"My dream is to play for my country's national team, the Black Stars, now that I believe I am in form and ready for the challenge," the player stressed.
