TALENT SPOTTER- Kojo Agyemang Pele: Meet The 16-year-old Midfield Meteronome Ready To Take The World By Storm

Ghana is known as the Brazilians of African football. Just like football powerhouse, Ghana is a nation blessed with enormous football talents- some are able to play to the upper echelon as far as football is concerned; others also fall off along the way unable to realise their dream of etching their names in football folklore. Ghana has been a happy hunting ground for scouts world over.

The likes of  Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah, Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, Stephen Appiah , Asamoah Gyan just to mention but a few were discovered while playing on  grassless pitches in the country but were able to make indelible imprints and will forever be remembered for their exploits. 
The Ghanaian football community continues to provide a steady source of talent for relatively reasonable fees; it’s simply a question of choosing the right player.
As the motherlode of talents, hardly a year passes by without a new star emerging from the West African nation. Among the new wave of talents emerging from the country is Kojo Agyemang Pele. He has quickly established himself as one of Ghana’s hottest prospects, courtesy of some encouraging laced performances for Asoya FC, a third-tier club in Madina, a suburb of Accra.
He loves to play as an attacking midfielder where he prods, pokes and pinge passes over and through opposition lines with vision and also dribbles excellently. He has a deceptive gait and a low centre of gravity which has been the preserve of most famous number 10s. It is visible that watching Lionel Messi left an impression on Pele’s youth. 
He has the unpredictability shared by so many beloved play-makers of yore and can score from range. He is occasionally shifted to the left hand side of Asoya FC’s attack, where he jinks in field, his soft quick feet shuffling at terrifying speed. Playing from the flank has aided Pele’s technical progression; he’s learned to be a more rounded team player from this position.
Born in Dansoman, the 16-year-old started his career with Ford FC, a colts club in Ghana’s capital. His subsequent years at the Dansoman based club saw him rise through the club’s underage teams, with his eye-catching skills, inherently also ensuring attraction from East Legon based Beautiful Game Academy which he later joined to further develop his craft.
Despite his small size and always playing against experienced and stronger opponents, Pele was never intimidated and grew to be the club’s poster boy with his spellbindly consistent performances. In a game against Asoya FC (his current club), the young midfielder was enjoying what he loves to do- controlling the midfield, nutmegging his opponents and playing his attackers through with his tailored-measured passes but unbeknownst to him, eyes were watching him and one that immediately fell in love with Pele’s display was a scout of Football Club Olimpik Kropyvnytskyi, a Ukrainian club who was in the country to scout for talents. 
He wasted no time in making his intentions clear and that was to get the young man to play for his club and that was how Kojo Agyemang Pele landed in Kropyvnytskyi to begin a career with the club’s development team.”  Luck however eluded the midfield maestro as his stay in the eastern European country was cut short due to failed negotiations between the teenager’s Ghanaian club Beautiful Game Academy and the Ukrainian club.
He is much and stronger than what his frame suggests, and possesses ample strength to go shoulder-to-shoulder with bigger players. He is a midfielder who enjoys sitting deep and enjoys showing off his excellent range of passing. He is always looking forward on the pitch, trying to develop attacks with brilliant through-balls. 
He is a good dribbler too- a true entertainer and has great stamina, and while he look like Scooby Doo in certain battles, he does have a resilient way of pressurising opponents and recovering possession.
Though highly talented, he is still a raw product that needs polishing in many aspects, but if he sticks with his current work ethic, there is no doubt that he can become a top-class player who will dazzle fans for many years to come. “The only thing that interests me at the moment is learning as much as possible from my coaches and senior colleagues. I must improve technically and tactically to meet the exigencies of the modern game.” He quipped
His temperament is outstanding and plays with maturity that belies his tender years. Improving all the time, with the right technical guidance and tutelage, it would be a travesty beyond compare if Kojo Agyemang Pele does not take the world by storm with his immense talent.
