Fired up: Seth Owusu set for Sagrada Esperanca debut

Seth Owusu is excited and pumped up for action as he awaits his chance to play for Sagrada Esperanca in the Angolan top flight league for the first time on Saturday after receiving his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) on Friday.

Owusu who last played for Golden Arrows in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL), has had to wait for months negotiating his visa to the Southern African country, a situation which meant he had to come down to Ghana with officials of Esperanca.

After weeks of waiting, he finally got his work permit and the Ghanaian defender flew out to Angola two weeks ago but was still not eligible to turn out for his club in the Girabola due to the delay of his ITC.

But all is now history and the former Hearts of Oak, Medeama and Chivas USA left back can now heave a sigh of relief after being named in the Sagrada Esperanca squad currently in camp for tomorrow’s mid0tabel clash at Onze Bravos.

“I’m in the team, I’m going to make my debut tomorrow afternoon after I received my ITC this morning. I feel so excited because that’s what I have been waiting for,” an obviously elated Owusu told exclusively from his Angola base.

“It’s left with just three matches to end the first round of the league but I have been working hard in training so I’m not surprised I’m in the team after my ITC arrived this morning,” he added.

Seth Owusu will be the first Ghanaian player to be wearing the jersey of Sagrada Esperança as he seeks in re-launching his career after being inactive since his previous stint with South African side, Golden Arrows ended at the end of last season.

The 24 year old lanky left back had a short stint with MLS side, Chivas USA before moving to Hearts of Oak for the 2011/12 Ghana Premier League campaign after previously starring for Medeama SC. Follow @thedonplato
