I’m proud of him - Ex-Kotoko forward Eric Bekoe waxes lyrical about Isaac Oppong after exploits in RC Kadiogo win

Published on: 13 September 2022

Former Asante Kotoko striker Eric Bekoe has heaped praise on enterprising winger Isaac Oppong, tipping him to achieve greater height in his career.

The youngster scored a late winner for the Porcupine Warriors to mark his return to full fitness after struggling in the 2021/22 season due to injury setbacks.

Isaac Oppong found space in the box and slotted home at the death to give Kotoko an important first leg win in CAF Champions League preliminary round.

In an interview with Sunyani-based Union FM, the former Ghana Premier League goal king tipped Isaac Oppong for greatness considering his qualities.

“He’s an intelligent player, he’s able to read and analyze games”

“If you look at the way he scores goals, with little space he just put a spin on the ball and that is it”

“Looking at the goals he scores; it takes strikers who are snipers to score such goals”

“Isaac Oppong is a revelation, a dream player for Asante Kotoko depending on how they manage him”

“It takes a player with a high game to be able to take decision within a restricted or limited space in a game, so I am proud of him, he’s a young chap”

“He should be focus so that he doesn't become complacent and will be able to deliver as and when he’s in the game” he said.
