Al Ahly to open academy in Ghana in honor of former star Felix Aboagye – Report
Cairo giants Al Ahly are reportedly set to open a new academy in Ghana in honor of their former player Felix Aboagye.
The former Ghana international, who played for the Red Devils in the period between 1993 and 1998, emerged as one of the top foreign players who played for the club. Ghansoccernet reported that once the academy is established Aboagye would become its manager.
Aboagye visited the Red Castle’s headquarters in mid-November and attended the team’s training session. The former Black Stars striker, who also played for Zamalek, officially announced his retirement from football in 2010.
“What I did for the club during my play days is still fresh in their minds and they hold me in high esteem. They have promised to build a soccer academy in Ghana to honour me,” Aboagye told Ghanasoccernet in November.
The academy in Ghana is said to be part of a wider mission to extend the African Club of the Century’s influence and investments to other countries and to discover hidden talents.
The 41-year-old, who won the Egyptian Premier League title five times with Al Ahly, ended his stint as assistant coach of Ghana’s Liberty Professionals approximately a year ago.
