Asante Kotoko coach Prosper Narteh Ogum believes midfielder Richmond Lamptey can go far in his football career.
Richmond Lamptey, who is having a fantastic season with the Porcupine Warriors in the Ghana Premier League, has been named to the Black Stars’ 27-man squad list, which coach Chris Hughton announced on Monday morning.
The 26-year-old central midfielder joins Medeama’s Jonathan Sowah and Abdul Fatawu Hamidu as the only three home-based players to make the continental tournament squad.
Ogum, on the other hand, believes his midfielder has the potential to play at the highest level.
“I believe his game understanding, ability to identify situations on the field and apply the right decisions distinguishes him, and that is what he has been doing to help Kumasi Asante Kotoko as a team.” “I consider him to be a genius.”
“Richmond Lamptey makes the league exciting with his deft touches, these are what he’s done over the seasons he’s played on the local scene, and that has caught the attention of the numerous supporters who watch the local league”
“I believe Richmond Lamptey can reach the highest level of football with the right support, and I say this because of his strong sense of discipline.”
I admire his humility when you correct him on something, even though he is the best or one of the best in the local league.
His receptive body language says it all, and I believe he has a bright future.”
Ghana has already set up camp in Kumasi and will play Namibia in a friendly match on January 8, 2024, before departing for Abidjan two days later.
The Black Stars have been placed in Group B with Egypt, Cape Verde, and Mozambique, all seven-time champions.
