Black Stars defender, Alidu Seidu, has disclosed that he was delighted to play in front of his people in Kumasi last Thursday.
The Clermont Foot man was amazing for the Black Stars in their 2-1 win against the Central African Republic at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
Seidu, who was born and raised in Kumasi, lasted the entire duration of the game as he helped the Black Stars secure their ticket to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations scheduled to be held in Ivory Coast.
“Playing in Kumasi was a great experience. It was the first time playing in Kumasi so I was so happy playing in front of my people in Kumasi,” he said.
“Representing my country is a big privilege for me and it is a special thing in my career because all footballers dream of playing for their country. Me playing for my motherland is a big achievement for me.”
Alidu Seidu’s spectacular performance compelled the fans to chant his name
“Being born in Kumasi, I have a lot of fans in Kumasi and people chanting my name, it always boosts me and encourage me to give more to the fans to enjoy more,” added the defender.
The player is currently with his teammates in Accra preparing for the friendly game against Liberia at the Accra sports stadium.
