Denmark plan to cap Ghana’s Adu Kofi at senior level

The midfielder is on the radar of the European country, who are hunting for talents to beef up their senior side ahead of the 2014 World Cup
Denmark are planning to cap Ghana international midfielder Enock Adu at the senior level due to his continued exclusion when players are called by the Black Stars’ technical team.

Through the help of Martin Poulsen, a Dane working in Ghana, Ghana had the chance of speaking to a member of the Danish Football Association who pleaded anonymity, but pointed out that Denmark are prepared to cap Kofi at senior level as it is now evident that with all his talent he is not needed in the Black Stars.

“We have been able to cap Adu Kofi's Nordsjaelland team mate Jores Okore who is an Ivorian at senior level, very soon we hope to capture Adu Kofi also as we want to get the best who can help us to qualify for the 2014 World Cup and also make it big,” the Danish FA official emphasised.

“Already, we have our talented natives such as Nicklas Bendtner, Simon Kjaer, Daniel Agger and others around, so we need some blacks also to beef up our team, we want to emulate France of 1998 and 2000.”

Kofi, 22, who has been pulling the strings in the middle for the Danish Champions was a member of the 2007 Ghana Black Starlets team who reached the semi-finals of the Under-17 World Cup in Korea.

He was also part of the initial 2009 U20 team but was overlooked for the world cup in Egypt. The talented playmaker has previously played for Anokye Stars, Liberty Professionals and French side OJ Nice.
