Kotoko forward Striker Sogne express interest in playing for Barcelona

Published on: 28 August 2018

Kumasi Asante Kotoko Striker Sogne Yacouba has revealed his dream to play for Catalan giants FC Barcelona after his time with the Porcupine Warriors.

The Burkina Faso international has been the talisman since his move to Kotoko this season and has proven his worth after netting twice against Accra Hearts of Oak last Sunday in a friendly match.

Yacouba's blockbuster display against the Phobians has put his name on the lips of many soccer pundits in the country, as clubs from abroad have began to monitor him with keen interest.

Speaking to FOX 97.9 FM, Yacouba, who seemed unsure of how far he will last with Kotoko despite being okay with his current status with the club, revealed his administration for Barcelona, hoping to play for them in some days to come.

"If I should move to Europe the club I would like to play for is Barcelona.

Sogne Yacouba played along with Senegal and Liverpool star striker Sadio Mané at the academy level in Senegal, and he hopes to soon rise to the level of his former team mate.

"I played with Sadio Mané at Académie Génération Foot in Dakar (Senegal), and as a footballer, I can play for any team in Europe but would wish to play for Barcelona," Yacouba stated.

Sogne Yacouba is currently under contract with Asante Kotoko but the club may sooner than later, put on the table a new offer that will tie him to the club for a longer period.
