South African teenager Siboniso Liedson eyes Ghana switch

The South African and former Netherlands Under-16 star has told Goal he wants to play for Ghana
Orlando Pirates Under-19 winger Siboniso Liedson Baraka Junior has stated his desire to play for Ghana rather than South Africa.

The 18-year-old wing wizard, who has been likened to Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo because of his skills, pace and eye for goal, is one of the highly rated young footballers in South Africa.

“My mother is a Ghanaian and my dream is to play for Ghana. I am currently in Ghana for holidays and I like the country so much,” Baraka told Goal Ghana.

“I am looking forward to play in the next Under-20 for Ghana and I am working hard towards that.”

The teenager has featured for the Malaga Academy in Spain, Black Leopards, Italian Serie C side FC Catanzaro and also the U17 side of Danish club FC Fyn. He also played for the Dutch national U16 during his stay in the Netherlands.
