Former Ghana U-20 star Clifford Aboagye has revealed that his height has been a hindrance to his career, especially in the early days of his football development.
The former FIFA U-20 Bronze ball-winner disclosed that he was rejected at trials because of his height disadvantage, but adds he never gave up.
“In the early days of my career at Inter Allies, it was a challenge even with all my skills,” he told Tv3. “My stature has been a hindrance to me but I never thought of giving up because I know the talent I have and what I can do with the ball especially in midfield,” he added.
He continued:”With this stature, you get people saying you need to build up on your body but I know the qualities I have, not all players have that quality so I have always been firm on my stature.”
The 25-year old now plays for Mexican club Querétaro F.C. on loan from Club Atlas.
Aboagye spent four years in Spain, where he played for Granada B before deciding to make a move from Europe to North America.
