I’m Back To Form – Afriyie Acquah

Black Stars midfielder Afriyie Acquah has told Ghana Sports that he is fit and has found his form and looking forward to playing in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The TSG Hoffenheim playmaker, who is now on loan at Parma, said he was sidelined by injury, putting his international career on hold but has now recovered and waiting for a call-up.

“I played Palermo all three years before coming to Parma for loan. I couldn’t play enough but just three months before I moved again to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim. After the move I got injured and stayed out for about two-months so things were not that smooth,” he recounted.

“So I decided to come back to Italy because that is where I began my playing career, so I moved to Parma and I am getting enough playing time here,” he said.

“Even though the season has not ended yet I get to play as always. I believe anybody who watches Serie A will testify to the fact that I always get to play for Parma.

“I want to stay and play anywhere I will be getting playing time either in Germany or here in Italy,” he noted.

The midfielder featured in Parma’s 4-0 win over Atalanta last week.
Afriyie Acquah is hoping for a recall into the Black Stars.

“I have not heard from Kwesi Appiah but my managers have informed him and I think he knows, because of the Serie A games I play always,” Afriyie said.

The Italy-based midfielder was part of Ghana’s team that played Malawi in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. He scored his first goal for Ghana in that game.

Afiyie Acquah made his debut in the Black Stars’ match against Chile in Pennsylvania, USA.
