Asante reveals reason behind his move to Dreams FC

The former Asante Kotoko midfielder has revealed that he opted to join the league's debutants in a bid to win a move abroad

Dreams FC midfielder Godfred Asante has admitted he agreed to sign for the club with the hope of winning a deal outside the country.

The 25-year-old joined the Kweiman-based club from relegated Great Olympics as a free agent and intends to move abroad after a futile attempt in Libya last year.

“I want to move abroad that's why I joined the club," Asante told the Dream FC website.

"I’m a professional. I came here to do my work.  It’s the dream of every footballer to play abroad. If I’m here and there’s a contract from a foreign club and Dreams feel they are impressed, I will leave but until then, I'm ready to serve the club,” he insisted. 

Asante also revealed that it was always his dream to work under his new coach CK Akunnor who captained Ghana for almost a decade.

“It’s a dream come true to work under CK Akunnor. We all know what he has achieved in the game and I’m very happy that he’s going to impact on me his knowledge,” he said.

“I’ve had a quick chat with him and he welcomed me to the club. He told me he was happy that I'm here and advised me to work hard," he added. 

Asante has become the latest addition in Akunnor's setup after the signings of Mozart Adjetey, Isaac Akrong, David "Smalboy" Korbah, Alhassan Kalusha and Aaron Amoah.

Dreams FC won the Zone 3 of Ghana's second-tier league with 56 points, seven points ahead of Tema Youth to gain promotion to the topflight.
