Attention Mr. Avram Grant: Bechem’s Patrick Opoku demands Black Stars call

Bechem United defender, Patrick Opoku is adamant his time has come to take up a role for his country and is appealing to Ghanaian national team selectors to take notice of his credentials in the domestic football league.

Opoku has been a mainstay of the sensational Brong Ahafo Regional side which currently occupy 9th spot on the Ghana Premier League table on 13 points from 9 games, but such has been the battles he has had to engage in the barely one-third of the 2014/15 First Capital Plus league, the Bechem United defender reckons he is ready for the big stage.

‘I have been doing well since the start of the league. For me, today I didn’t play as well as I did in previous games, but I won the best player award. So I hope that I earn a call up into the national team,” Opoku told newsmen moments after championing his side’s 2-0 conquest of Accra Great Olympics on 25 February.

Whether or not Black Stars helmsman, Avram Grant pays attention or not, there is only one goal Opoku vows to pursue whilst chasing the childhood dream of turning out for his country.

“Obviously like every other footballer, I have always wished to play for Ghana, it will be an honour beyond my imaginations,” Opoku told

“But I also know it won’t come cheap that’s why I am not resting at all until I get to the top, there is still a long way to go. I will not be angry if I’m not called now but I will keep working hard and if I prove I’m good enough, I don’t anybody can deny me,” the Bechem United defender added.

Opoku has meanwhile arrived in Accra on a mission to secure a first away win of the season with Bechem United in Dansoman against LIberty Professionals, hoping that the in-town Black Stars coach shows up at Carl Reindorf Park on Sunday afternoon, match day 10. Follow @thedonplato
