thumbnail Hello,

The Ghana international is back home to take some rest before going to play in the second round of the Egyptian league for his parent club

Ghana international winger Francis Akwaffo will start playing for his Egyptian club Al Ittihad Sakndary in the second round of the league after cutting short his loan spell with Libyan side Al Nasr due to their elimination from the Caf Confederations Cup.

The former Kumasi Asante Kotoko player signed a six-month loan deal with the Libyan giants to help them in the Confederations Cup and though he put up fantastic performances, the club failed to make it to the final knockout round after losing to FAR Rabat of Morocco.

“I am in Ghana now to take some rest. I will be in Egypt in three weeks time to help my team Al Ittihad in the second round of the league,” Akwaffo told Ghana.

“The fans of the club were not pleased with the president for allowing me to go on loan and I had to cut short the loan deal and return after Al Nasr's elimination from the Confederations Cup.

Akwaffo, 26, has been one of the star players of the club since joining them and had been ever present in their games before going on loan when the Egyptian league was suspended.
