Pantsil: I used to play for Arsenal

Pantsil: I used to play for Arsenal Fulham defender John Pantsil has revealed how he kicked off his career at home in Ghana’s Fourth Division!

Pantsil used to turn out for Berekum Arsenal and told the People: “To go from the fourth division in Ghana to the Premier League in England, it shows you that you can achieve any dream if you work hard enough and believe enough.

“When I was at Berekum Arsenal, I didn’t imagine I would ever play against the other Arsenal.

“We were in the fourth division when I started there but we won three promotions in three years before I left and they are now one of the top four teams in Ghana.

 “The chairman is a big fan of Arsenal in England so he decided to name his club after them. They play in red shirts with white sleeves and have the same badge as Arsenal.

“When Arsenal changed the colour of their shirts, so did Berekum Arsenal!”
