Ghanaian midfielder Anthony Annan is delighted to have played for Finish champions HJK and is looking forward to rediscover his old form.
The 28-year-old joined HJK as a free agent from Schalke during the summer transfer window and has already made his debut for the side.
“Many clubs were interested in me. I discussed this with my agent. He said that HJK are a great club and want me so I signed for them,” Annan told Italehti. “I wanted to play. HJK is a good team. I'm glad to be here.”
Annan further revealed that he already knew his HJK Ghanaian compatriot Gideon Baah before signing for the Finish giants.
“I knew Gideon Baah already before coming here, he played in the Ghana local league. He has played in one of the biggest clubs in Ghana,” ‘Pablo’ as he is affectionately called said.
HJK will open their Europa League group B accounts with a game away to FC Copenhagen in Denmark.
