"They told me he is fat and can’t run in the game ,i wanted him to have trial with the under 20 but they rejected him," he told Metro FM.

“I later linked him to Red Bull Academy in Ghana before signing for Accra Hearts of Oak in 2011,” he added.

Robin Gnagne joined Red Bulls before moving to Accra Hearts of Oak where he has now become a house hold name.

Meanwhile, Ahmed Toure is with Bechem United where he is joint top scorer with Thomas Abbey of Accra Hearts of Oak, with 12 goals.
