Otto Addo’s style of play will bring out the quality in my game – Jerome Opoku

Black Stars defender Jerome Opoku believes head coach Otto Addo is instrumental in maximizing his potential, expressing confidence in Addo’s ability to enhance his performance.

Opoku’s sentiments came after Ghana’s 2-1 defeat to Nigeria in a friendly match where he received a red card in the 56th minute, reducing Ghana to 10 men for a significant portion of the game.

The defender attributed his dismissal to miscommunication, with Addo urging the Istanbul Basaksehir player, currently on loan from Arouca in Portugal, to learn from the incident.

Opoku emphasized his trust in Addo’s coaching style, highlighting the coach’s emphasis on playing football and nurturing players’ skills, aligning with Opoku’s own preference for a technical approach.

“It’s (my performance today is) something for me to build on and keep learning. I think this coach, he wants to play football. Me I like to play football, I’m not just going long, kick it long, so I can bring out the quality of my game under the coach.”
