Goalkeeper’s trainer of the Black Satellites, Issah Najahu has lauded Inter Allies' goalie Kwame Baah for his unique talent between the sticks.
The young goalie earned the praise of the national goalkeeper’s trainer after showing cat-like reflexes while in action for the Black Satellites team.
Baah leads a quartet of goalkeeper’s in the camp of the U-20 national side as they prepare to take on Ethiopia in an African Youth Championship qualifier next week.
Issah Najahu, who has handled many young goalkeepers in the country credited Kwame Baah for his total contribution to the team.
The former Real Tamale United and Wa All Stars custodian heaped kind words on all four shot stoppers in camp but singled out Baah for special praise.
“Kwame is a young goalkeeper any side will like to have between your post. He is a complete goalkeeper and works with the right attitude as well. He look destined for greatness.
Fortunately in our camp, we have almost equal replacement for the Inter Allies goalkeeper.
The likes of Richmond Ayi from Techiman City or Benjamin Asiedu and Fatawu Dida are just as good as Kwame between the post as well.
“Our goalkeeping department has no problem for now,” Najahu told sportscrusader.com.
The trainer added, “Baah’s experience from the previous Championship tells me his value and what he brings on board. He is a very composed shot stopper and has demonstrated it times without number”.
The Black Satellites picked a bye in the opening rounds of the African U-20 Youth Championship slated for Zambia 2017.
The Ghanaians head to Adiss Ababa for the first leg of the qualifiers on May 18 before hosting the Ethiopians later.
