Former Ghanaian international Felix Ahmed Aboagye has revealed that he used juju during his playing days back in Ghana.
He was responding to questions presented to him on Facebook in an exclusive interaction with his followers dubbed; “ask question and I will answer it professionally”
“My name is Felix Ahmed Aboagye, Ex professional footballer who played for the Black Stars and current assistant coach of Ghana Premier League side Elmina Sharks FC. Let’s spend some of the leisure time during this Covid-19 period on questions and answers, to answer some basic football questions to the youth on how to become a Good Footballer.
During the interaction, he was asked whether he used juju during his playing time, and his response was yes.
“I used juju during my early days in Ghana things changed when I arrived in Egypt. I realized that football in Egypt was being played with your own given talent and not ‘juju’ so I threw them away”
He therefore advised the upcoming footballers not to rely on juju.
Speaking about the national team, he explained that they were good players in his time but lack of unity and poor player management caused them
“Per my estimation, despite having a whole lot of talented and exceptional players among our generation, poor management of the players and divisions amongst the players in the team let our generation down.
At a time togetherness was hard to find.
We can argue that luck eluded us but if we could have pushed a little harder we should have gone and make an impact. A lot of regrets and dream shattered.” He explained
Felix Aboagye added that even though he played with Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah, CK Akunnor, Kwame Ayew, Augustine Arhinful, and others, it was Abedi Pele who inspired him most during his playing time.
The 44-year-old old Kumasi native began his career with Dawu Youngstars in 1992. He moved to Al Ahly just after a year and spent five years on the books of the Cairo giants before switching to Greek side Olympiakos.
He won 26 caps for Ghana in a six year spell in the National team between 1996-2000.
He attended two AFCON tournaments with Ghana and represented 14 clubs across the world in a 17 year football career that ended in 2009.
