The former captain of the Black Meteors says he is poised to wear the jersey of the Porcupine Warriors in the new season expected to start October 7Former Liberty Professionals captain Michael Kafui Helegbe has stated that he is well focused as he gets set to begin his Asante Kotoko career.
He said he can contain the pressure that comes with wearing the jersey of the Porcupine Warriors.
“I am not under any pressure, and people are not putting pressure on me to deliver, I am well focused,” Helegbe told the 90 Minutes.
“The most important thing is that I have been sorted out and I can now play for the club. I will do my best.”
Helegbe who was touted as the most talented player during his generation which included Black Stars players Anthony Annan and Asamoah Gyan has failed to reach his full potential after having unsuccessful spells with French side Guingamp, Norwegian side SK Bran and Belgian second-tier KV Oostende.
He was the captain of the national Under-23 team which failed to qualify for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.
