I am delighted for Atsu - Tony Yeboah

Ghana football legend, Anthony Yeboah says he is delighted that Black Stars play maker Christian Atsu will finally get a chance to showcase his talents in the upcoming English Premier League.

Atsu recently joined Newcastle United permanently after helping them secure promotion from the second tier of English football.

Atsu has struggled to find chances in the English Premier League hard to come by after joining Chelsea from Porto in 2013.

The wide man had been loaned to several clubs until he found favour with Newcastle, who’s Coach Rafa Benitez reposed a lot of faith in him.

According to Yeboah, who is regarded as one of the best Africans to play in the English League, Atsu’s talent deserves to be recognition on the bigger stage.

Speaking to ESPN, Yeboah said “ I am delighted to Atsu. He has been tossed around on loan from one club to the other but he seems to have found a base at a very good club like Newcastle United.

“The Premier League will test him incredibly. It requires strength, a strong personality and such great discipline, but he is such a good player and I really hope he can prove that in the Premier League,” Yeboah concluded.
