Vojvodina Novi Sad's young centre-back Abraham Akwasi Frimpong is eyeing a call-up to the Ghana national Under-20 team as head coach Maxwell Konadu seeks to build a formidable side for next year's African Under 20 championship in Algeria.
“I am looking forward for a call up to the national Under 20 for me to prove my mettle as I have done so well for my club,” he told Goal.com Ghana.
“I think I can help in the central defense, and I would be very glad to answer the national call anytime they send an invite to me.”
The 19-year-old Ghanaian centre back is a budding star who had previously made all the headlines in Italy.
Frimpong won the best player in the prestigious Romeo and Juliet Youth tournament in Italy way back in 2008 which also featured the likes of Parma's Afriyie Acquah, Amidu Salifu of Catania, Enock Bawuah, the brother of Mario Balotelli, David Santon of Newcastle United and others.
Vicenza signed the youngster and he impressed greatly by breaking into the first team, billed to sign for Red Star Belgrade last summer after excelling in trials with them, but Vojvodina pulled a fast one by agreeing terms with the player and his agent in what is referred to as the most heart breaking transfer coup in Serbian football.
