…promises to break into the national team by end of season

Inter Allies FC attacking player, Samuel Armah, popularly known as BA, has signed a season-long loan deal with Albania top-flight club, Klubi Futbollistik Skënderbeu Korçë, (KF Skenderbeu)

The club finished fourth in the previous league season missing its chances of playing in Europe to third-placed Laci KF and are hoping to make it to the European competition this season, a factor that necessitated the signing of the Ghanaian striker who is very prolific in front of goal.

Before leaving the shores of Ghana this weekend, BA pulled a staggering performance in the previous season’s Ghana premier league for Inter Allies FC, scoring six goals with eight assist in just 12 matches. The player joined his new teammates over the weekend and has started training with them ahead of their next league game after the FIFA international break.

In an interview with the B&FT, the 19-year-old striker narrated his dreams of playing for the nation, starting from the Ghana national U-20 football team, the Black Satellites, as well as Ghana Olympic football team or Black Meteors and subsequently securing a slot in the senior national team the Black Stars.

“I want to play in the national teams for my country and I know the only way to make it there is to work hard and play regularly at the club level, so I am going to give my all to my club in Albania and hope to be recognized by the coaches of the national teams.

I hope to break into the national team soon and I will give my best for the national team. My dream is to follow the footstep of Andre Dede Ayew and his colleagues to win a world cup trophy for Ghana someday. My target now is to be the top scorer in the Kategoria Superiore, at least, if not the best player at the end of the league this season,” he said.

Samuel Armah, who’s ambitions at the club level is to don the red and white jersey of Liverpool and experience the explosive euphoria that is being spoken so much about at Anfield Stadium, made his presence felt in the Ghana premier league with his special features such as his physical strength, agility and ball control.

According to Albanian side KF Skenderbeu, they have scouted the player for a while now and are convinced that he has all the right attributes to be a top player in their league, noting that his energy is very impressive and his ability to score with both feet even from outside the box is commendable.

He narrated how his coach described him as an intelligent footballer and so looking forward to him to integrate into the system and contribute to the progress they building at the club.
