Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time, and energy needed to develop yourself. It gives you permission to invest in yourself so you can develop your own potential.
The above quote by Denis Whitley by far perfectly describes the journey of young Felix Annan, the flawless goalkeeper who has been the cynosure in Kotoko games for the past three (3) seasons.
Annan joined Kotoko during the 2011 season and was absolutely difficult to break through the goalkeeping department. But took it cool to wait for his time to understudy the late Soulama Abdullai and Isaac Amoako.
He was loaned to both West Africa Football Academy (WAFA)and Real Tamale United (RTU) to shape himself for the bigger test.
His return has been glorious, thus far. And remain undoubtedly the best in the local scene.
Very professional, discipline and willing to use his last breath to save Asante Kotoko from defeat.
His appointment is timely, apt and appropriate following his overwhelming commitment, professionalism, performance and humility. Annan is a man every true supporter of Asante Kotoko will be proud of and being the leader of the team will position him so well to coerce his other colleagues to perform beyond their limit to grab victory for the Porcupines.
The Black Stars goalkeeper possess everything it is for captain to posses. He's mentally strong, excellent communicator, emotionally disciplined and self-confident.
Felix Annan’s technical prowess without an iota of doubt wheresoever remains something to really find it difficult to comprehend, simply sensational. His tranquillity, composure, confidence and agility in post give impression to one who’s naturally gifted and talented.
Felix Annan who can be best described as “The 12th Man among the Eleven” on any day will shoulder his team throughout the Champions League competition.
As the Reds prepare to lock horns with Kano Pillars, Coach Zachariassen will have to concentrate on the other departments apart from the goalkeeping area since Felix Annan is available to put up flamboyant performance.
